THAILAND AND LUCK


Thai patent

GlaxoSmithKline has withdrawn a Thai patent application for an AIDs drug
following public pressure. So reports LifeStyleExtra. It has not given the reason, though campaigners claim it is because the invention combined formerly known drugs in a way that was not patentable.



The IPKat reckons its hard to know the reason why, but the effect is the same.

Good luck!

Good luck to all those students taking the London LLM IIP exam tomorrow.

All comments must be moderated by a member of the IPKat team before they appear on the blog. Comments will not be allowed if the contravene the IPKat policy that readers' comments should not be obscene or defamatory; they should not consist of ad hominem attacks on members of the blog team or other comment-posters and they should make a constructive contribution to the discussion of the post on which they purport to comment.

It is also the IPKat policy that comments should not be made completely anonymously, and users should use a consistent name or pseudonym (which should not itself be defamatory or obscene, or that of another real person), either in the "identity" field, or at the beginning of the comment. Current practice is to, however, allow a limited number of comments that contravene this policy, provided that the comment has a high degree of relevance and the comment chain does not become too difficult to follow.
