TPP trade agreement undercuts biologic patents
JOHN R. GRAHAM | 12/15/15
U.S. law grants biologics exclusivity for 12 years. The TPP, however, allows no more than eight years.
I don’t agree with the article’s concerns–and I don’t think life should be patentable anyway. However, maybe this is a good thing that the U.S. Congress could decide to defeat the TPP because of this.
