Provision of compulsory licensing

Over the last few decades, medical technologies have transformed many previously untreatable diseases such as HIV/AIDS into a long term manageable conditions. There is an increasing burden of rising global diseases. In order to combat it, there is a continuing need to develop new and effective medicines. The basic principle behind granting patent protection is to encourage inventions and promote technological innovations in order to provide benefits to the provider and user. A compulsory license is a license provided by the government body of a country to a person allowing him to use an invention without the patent owner’s permission.

Patent provides an exclusive right to the patent inventor to prevent others to make use and sell their products. The absence of competition enables patent holders to set higher prices for drug, thus causing for the monopoly. The high prices of patented drugs may lead to their unaffordability and restricts it access to poor patients. Thus the patent holder may abuse his patent rights.  In order to counter such abuses of patent rights, Agreement on Trade Related Aspects of Intellectual Property Rights (TRIPS), gave the provision of compulsory license. It helps to keep a check on the use of the invention on the grounds of public morality. The countries which mostly have health crisis are developing countries or under-developed countries which have low manufacturing capacities.  TRIPS agreement allows member countries to issue compulsory license to produce drugs for export to countries which have less or no manufacturing capacity. There is restricted access of medicines in developing and under-developed countries. The compulsory license is thus making significant impact in improving access to patented invention, which in turn is rising the demand of medical intellectual property market.

The main aim of compulsory licensing is to improve access of public to patented expensive drugs. This is thus leading to more competition in the market and overall reduction in prices of drugs. It is expected to greatly favor the public. Increase in competition will increase the supply of products. The compulsory license is essential to deal with the case of patent suppression by pressurizing the inventor to utilize the patent to maximum national advantage. Many countries are voluntarily making proactive efforts to make their drugs accessible due to the threat of the compulsory license, thud aiding in the growth of medical intellectual property market.
