Are you experienced -- in compulsory licensing?

The Intellectual Property Institute is currently supervising a research project on compulsory patent licences. Part of the project involves interviewing people whose experiences of compulsory licences are real, rather than based on theoretical economic or legal appraisals. Alas, since compulsory licences don't happen that often, it's not easy to find people to interview. So ... if you have hands-on experience of compulsory licensing because you are

(i) a patent owner whose patent has been subjected to a compulsory licence,

(ii) a business that has applied for a compulsory licence, or

(iii) a professional adviser to either of the above, and

(iv) you don't mind answering a few questions about compulsory licences,

please email Paul Leonard at the IPI and let him know (i) who you are and (ii) what the nature of your experience is. It doesn't matter which jurisdiction you're from, so long as you fit the description.

No comments:

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.
