Challenges faced by the Indian Pharmaceutical Companies in protecting various forms of Intellectual Property Rights

Publication Date Jul 22, 2022

Abstract

Intellectual Property (IP) is a pharmaceutical or Biotech Company’s most valuable resource, and its protection is a key to that company’s future success. Recent challenges over patents for HIV drugs has reminded the industry that progress is still needed in balancing the opposing forces of innovation through protection of IP rights, versus the provision of affordable drugs for the developing world. Pharmaceuticals companies must face the daily challenge of creating value through the exploitation of IP rights, but avoiding considerable reputational harm. This situation was well illustrated in South Africa during the late 1990s when the balance between IP protection and the urgent needs of patients were not aligned. Since then, companies have become more aware of the potential damage that can be caused by too strict an interpretation of IP rights. Working in collaboration with national governments, trans-national organizations such as the WHO, and non-governmental organizations such as the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, pharmaceuticals companies have begun to find ways through the minefield of IP protection in less developed countries, and most now have donation schemes for drugs to treat diseases such as leprosy and HIV.
