Patents and Market Concentration
Beginn 12:00 Uhr, Ende 13:00 Uhr
Measuring the Impact on Global Access to Medicines
Please join us for an event featuring Padmashree Gehl Sampath, a leading expert on trade policy, innovation policy and economic development, in conversation with *Mark Wu, Henry L. Stimson Professor at Harvard Law School.
Despite the vigorous strengthening of the global patent system in recent years, not only in industrialized economies like the USA, but also in the developing world, there have been limited attempts to measure the rise in concentration levels due to the patent system. This talk provides a first empirical assessment showing that concentration of patents results in market concentration in the pharma sector in the USA and contributes to greater returns for affiliates of U.S. companies in developing country markets of India, China and Brazil. A number of questions for intellectual property policy and competition policy are examined.
This event is a brown-bag luncheon and we encourage you to bring lunch to enjoy during event. Please note this event is not being live webcast and we encourage you to attend in person.
