Description

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:

  1. Non-exclusive use of publicly funded research results should be the default principle.
  2. Exclusive rights should become the exception, not the rule.
  3. No premature IP transfer from publicly funded institutions to private industry"
