« Wrapping up the Issues from the FDA Hearings on Biosimilars | Main | IPO and BIO Submit Comments on USPTO Reexamination Voucher Proposal »

Preview of the speakers remarks:

We don't have a clue as to the effect of strong IP laws on the rate of innovation and economic growth but we are keepers of the faith and thus we encourage you to take a leap of faith.

We also don't have a clue as to whether a shift to stronger intellectual property rights promotes foreign direct investment and technology transfer into developing countries, but again, we encourage you to take a leap of faith.

We believe that strong IP protection favors northern economies over southern economies (see civil war) and it is not alternatively a means to ultimately level the playing field, but since we live in the northern economy we encourage you to adopt strong IP protection.

We believe national measures that require the involuntary transfer or withdrawal of IP rights achieve the long-term developmental goals of developing countries but are strongly against it because we're getting rich bi tch.

We believe that the World Bank should not factor intellectual property into its investment and decision making processes to incentivize legal frameworks that promote economic growth, but we encourage them to anyway because, again, we're getting rich bi tch.

We believe public agencies can acknowledge and reward private initiatives that use know how or intellectual property to address needs for which there is an insufficient commercial market with the delivery of womans and dollas (and maybe a lil somethin' somethin' if you have any).

Peace out yo!
