Interesses internacionais e guerra de patentes

Paolo Bifani


The article explore briefly some problems associated with IPR for biotechnological
invention. IPR are inadequates for the protection of new advanced technologies
and particularly for biotechnology. The problem is not only legal but mainly
economic for IPR has emerged as the major competitive weapon in the world
economy. In this context the main role of IPR is as a mechanism for the appropriation
of new inventions, as an instrument to deter rivals and to control markets. The
current debate, including the negotiations of the Uruguay Round are not so much
concerned for the search of legal mechanism adapted to the characteristics of
biotechnologies, but mainly for the building up of an international efficient
appropriability mechanism for the biotechnological inventions and the control of
their diffusion.
