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 niskanencenter.org/blog/new-paper…
@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

Africa generates less than 1% of world’s research.

Africa has 79 scientists per million compared to Brazil (656), Chile (428) & United States (4,500).

South Africa’s research foundation and Tunisia’s science ministry are the biggest funders of #science #research in Africa. /1
Woeful Africa:
1. 15% of the world’s population
2. 25% of the global burden of disease
3. 1% of global investment in R&D
4. 0.1% of the world’s patents

Scientists trained in Africa most likely work elsewhere due to lack of infrastructure and resources. /2

More than 80% of patents filled in Nigeria are by foreign entities. /3

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.
