Description

'Towards Access - Combining Intellectual Property, Competition and Human Rights': The owners of intellectual property (“IP”) have power. They can prevent access to important software for use in education and in health and can prevent others using this in their own innovation. This workshop will explore the place of competition and human rights in addressing these issues and in managing the impact of IP upon enabling access to essential technologies.
