“Pandemics and Vaccines: The Patent Practitioner View” will be presenting a look at the pandemic history of the 20th and 21st centuries, to see what the world’s biotechnologists were doing to be prepared for fighting them and how that was reflected in patent activities.
Can new vaccines be made before a new and unforecastable pandemic occurs?
What patent activities on new vaccines can be seen around historically known pandemics?
If we analyse their patenting, how continuously do new vaccine developments appear?
These questions will be presented and discussed with viewers by Gorodissky’s patent attorneys who are leaders in the biotechnological arena. A particular focus will be on the situation with patenting new COVID-19 vaccines in Russia as well as on political issues around permitting use of patented vaccines as an exception from exclusive patentee rights in pandemic emergency conditions.
