Starts: 8:10 AM (EDT)
Ends: 9:30 AM (EDT)

At the upcoming 2021 Licensing Executives Society International (LESI) Annual Conference, Partner Terry Rea will be speaking on the panel entitled "Socially Necessary Licensing of Technologies." The panel description is shown below:

During corona-pandemic, as to covid-19 pandemic, it has been largely argued how patents regarding technologies helping patients, covid-19 fighters, etc. so as to stamp covid-19. Some people might mention that patent systems are preventing from their making efforts on stamping out covid-19 pandemic.

However, obviously nobody can make efforts on researching new vaccines or new medicines by spending huge costs unless such compensation is given later. I would like experienced IP stake holder having such insight and knowledge to discuss about this important issue. For example, if there is any possibility of providing for the grant of compulsory licenses for vaccines, medicines, etc. If so, what kind of scheme is necessary to be prepared for researching entities while some voluntary activities, like Open Covid Pledge in USA, Open COVID-19 Declaration in Japan, etc.
