Equitable Health Research Licensing
Christian Wagner-Ahlfs, Peter Tinnemann, et al.:
"The proposal puts forward the concept of "Equitable Licensing" an idea for how intellectual property rights should be structured for R&D for NTDs. The proponents urge that the results of publicly funded R&D should be available for non-exclusive licensing.
The proposal relies on 3 IP principles:
- Non-exclusive use of publicly funded research results should be the default principle.
- Exclusive rights should become the exception, not the rule.
- No premature IP transfer from publicly funded institutions to private industry"
