Most recents (21)

1/ In 2008, @US_FDA phased out #albuterol inhalers w/ ozone-depleting CFCs, including several generics.

Since then, brand-name firms have reaped $14 billion in sales on albuterol products--though the active ingredient went off #patent in 1989!…

2/ The first #albuterol inhalers came to the market in 1981.

By the mid-1990s, inexpensive generics had become available.
3/ However, many early inhalers contained chlorofluorcarbons (CFCs).

Brand-name firms, in turn, developed more environmentally friendly #HFA and dry-powder (#DPI) #albuterol inhalers.

By their own estimates, they spent $250-400 million developing these products.

Patents & the patent process are rarely discussed in #biomechanics & #engineering fields of academia (at least in my experience). But they should be.

At @CREATEatVandy we held a roundtable discussion on patents/IP, fueled by great questions from students, postdocs & staff.
I encourage other researchers to organize a similar event. Intellectual property (IP) is an important topic, but a common blindspot for university graduates (BS, MS, PhD), which leads to misperceptions & missed opportunities for translating science & tech into societal impact.
How we did it: Prof. Michael Goldfarb (wearable tech pioneer) & I led a 90-minute discussion. We provided a brief overview of #patents, but mostly we just addressed/discussed questions from trainees & staff. You could also bring in university tech transfer office if helpful.

Let's talk about @BillGates @gatesfoundation food + ag agenda. It's not just the #patents; plans to ramp up ultra-processed foods and #monocrops; uncertainty about #GMO experiments (on animals, gene drives) but also who decides, who benefits? 1/10
It's too much to fit in one article, that's why we're writing a series - see statements (linked in post) from hundreds of groups representing hundreds of millions of people opposing Gates/WEF/agribusiness agenda playing out at @UN @FoodSystems Summit 2/10
The failures of the Gates-led "green revolution" to expand chemical industrial agriculture in #Africa are well documented, and long predicted by food system experts @foodfirstorg @eholtgim @altierimiguel… 3/10

New publication by @NavdanyaInt: Bill Gates & his Fake solutions to #ClimateChange" - Technofixes, Industrial Ag, Billionaires Ventures, & Fake Food will not save our Planet - Biodiversity & Agroecology are True Solutions to Climate Change @drvandanashiva
Behind a humanitarian veil, Bill Gates favours the interests of corporations, promoting failed technological solutions that harm ecosystems & divert attention from the deep systemic changes needed to address the crises we are facing today @drvandanashiva
The common thread that runs through all Bill Gates' programs is the idea that innovation and the market will always save us, that any problem can (and should only) be solved through technology @drvandanashiva #Gates2GlobalEmpire

#PIP Western(& Indian?) foreign policy experts and foreign trade negotiators, believe that the economics of merchandise trade, is the same as the economics of patents/intellectual property and the economics of the digital economy, because they are clueless about the last two! p
2/pip Intellectual Property (#IPR): The public economics of #Patents clearly shows that the optimal length of a patent depends on two opposing effects. Greater duration increases the profits from innovation, but patents slow use of new tech & discourge further innovation...2/
3/pip Optimal patent length is diff for diff econ's & diff for diff industries(proved empirically). Optimal length is V diff for developed cntrys(US, EU) than for EMEs(India, Brazil, SA). There's no ec justification for US/EU imposing its view. Int rules must split the diff...4/

Alright, every, time to take a break from our dystopian hellscape and get back to some fun stuff—the *just out* #CRISPR #patent interference decision. What does it mean? What happened? What happens next?

This is a Tweetstorm. Come along and ride with me: /1
First, a bit of history. As you may remember, we've been here before. Broad & UC had a previous interference that focused on CRISPR-Cas9 *eukaryotic* claims back in 2016/2017, affirmed by the CAFC in 2018. /2
In *that* interference, the PTAB declared there was no interference-in-fact between the parties' sets of claims. UC consequently went back to the PTO and, in a surprising decision, got some of its general (i.e., pro- and eukaryotic) system claims granted. /2

Interesting proposal that begs the question of inadequacy of territorially applied compulsory licenses & the cumbersome, narrow solution of such licenses for export. #AccessToMedicines #Patents Two problems remain
First, how do you price a patent that covers a pandemic drug? Will humanitarian needs drive up or down reasonable remuneration. There will be lessons there for developing countries looking to apply TRIPS flexibilities in the context of public health needs.
Secondly purchasing the patent to 'maintain R&D incentives for the pharmaceutical sector' assumes our incentives are fit for purpose. Instead of condoning monopoly pricing that has become the norm here,

A short story on #patents #patentrolls #NPEs #PAEs and #Covid_19 Labrador Diagnostics (SoftBank) v. BioFire (bioMerieux S.A.) #npeie
Labrador Diagnostics LLC is a newly (March 6, 2020) formed NPE that does not have any facilities of its own, created by Fortress Investment Group, the IP monetization entity recently acquired by SoftBank.
Labrador claims to hold the rights to 2 patents (US Patents 8,283,155 and 10,533,994) filed 14 years ago and originally assigned to Theranos IP Company - the firm that shut down in scandal over medical testing equipment, charged with "massive fraud" by the SEC in 2018.

Innovative companies are known to generate higher annual total shareholder returns as compared to their peers who are not focused on innovation as a strategy for future business growth

Global innovation trends reveal that innovation is among top 3 priorities for industry leaders
One challenge faced by leadership teams to promote #innovation initiatives include excess action by individual innovators, without a uniform direction.

This leads to various disconnected efforts that fail to generate desired results

#management #leadership #strategy #tech
Effective leaders aim at innovation with a clear strategy by defining role of each team member.

This results in creation of various internal innovative vehicles for the organization that contributes to the target portfolio by generating valuable tangible and intangible assets

THREAD: @lindsey_brink & @danieltakash have written a new paper for @niskanencenter on #IP. Should patents and copyrights should be considered “intellectual property” and thus part of the larger system of private property? We conclude the answer is no. /1…
@lindsey_brink @DanielTakash @NiskanenCenter The purpose of patents and copyrights is to grant exclusive rights to creative works & innovations so in cases where the cost of innovation is high but the cost of imitation is low, free-riding & copying wouldn’t eliminate the incentive to innovate. /2
@lindsey_brink @DanielTakash @NiskanenCenter As stated in the US Constitution: “To promote the Progress of Science and useful Arts, by securing for limited Times to Authors and Inventors the exclusive Right to their respective Writings and Discoveries.” /3

Besides the IP issue, the deal has language that supports new #patents for “new uses of a known product.”

AbbVie does this w Humira &senators criticized them for it in Feb. Will that trade language be an issue if Congress wants to take on evergreening?
I spoke to @JohnCornyn about this a few weeks ago...and he said he'd take a second look at the patent language. He also wasn't convinced USMCA had the support it needed to pass…
The Trade Office has always held that USMCA deal wouldn't increase drug prices *here in the U.S* (a rep told me that last month)...but if there's not political support for the deal it doesn't really matter what that office says ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

This all started because the #MetPolice & #LBRUT couldn't do their day jobs properly & decided to take the law into their own hands. It started as a small cover up 12 years ago but has turned into British State Persecution.

My company was raided. It should have been a straightforward matter. But the #MetPolice & #LBRUT forgot to seize my computer & came back to do a 2nd raid. The search warrant didn't permit a second entry, however, #LBRUT entered unlawfully

Complaints were then made to my MP #VinceCable. He liaised with the #Metpolice & #LBRUT. And then weeks later, the search warrant was completely changed & was passed off as the search warrant executed on the day of the raids.
