International Crop-Science Conference & Exhibition

Prospects of Agrochemical and Biotech Industry Post WTO Era

27th  - 28th July, 2006     Radisson Bangkok, Thailand







By creating a new I.P. right, that is data exclusivity outside the duration of the basic patent and SPCC the « Dominant Industry » has secured for itself the WHOLE CAKE !


This is increasingly misunderstood, unpopular, and like any excessive immoderation, unsustainable. It will run up against its own contradictions and all kinds of dispositions including competition law.


Even a fashionable, though spurious, catchphrase such as « free riders » applied to the independent generic producers will not resist the evidence and the enormity of the CAKE.


Beyond differences of opinion and corporatist interests, a new multilateral approach will have to be invented to reconcile public health and environmental regulations with I.P. rights, consistent with their respective objectives.   ( text )
