About the Book

Name of the Book: IPR Regime and COVID 19

The advancement of technology has been a driving factor in the global economy. Intellectual Property has been central to that, however, the debate of public health vs IPR has been a never-ending one The IPR regime incentivizes the innovator/s and help them reap the benefits of their labour, but at the same, the concern for public health is also very real.

Pharmaceutical companies invest billions in their research on a drug, and when they are put on the market, they would want to benefit from their investments. The pertinent question here is whether, we have a balanced IPR regime, which would not only lubricate the wheels of the economy, but also pay attention to the public health?
