About this course

With research laboratories around the world racing to develop vaccines and other medicines to bring a halt to the COVID-19 Pandemic, questions of patent protection and access to those patents has led to an international group of scientists and lawyers establishing the Open COVID Pledge. This movement calls on organisations worldwide to freely make available their patents and copyrights associated with the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic. This seminar focuses on the unique challenges of balancing intellectual property rights with serving the public good. Questions around the funding of research and the rights of nations to grant compulsory licenses over lifesaving medicines and technologies need to be addressed and perhaps the Open COVID Pledge encouraging an open access licence for these technologies will provide a brighter future for humanity.
