Whose Property Is It, Anyway?

May 2006
European Pharmaceutical Executive;May/Jun2006, p18
The article discusses the need for the pharmaceutical industry to change its attitude towards intellectual property to survive the changing climate of patent rights in Europe. It focuses on the issue of whether the possession of a single patent was sufficient grounds to bring someone else's operations to halt if they infringed that patent. Developers of drugs or technology need protection not only for their ideas, but also to recoup costs of their investments in developing new medicines.
