Generic Drug Entry Prior to Patent Expiration

2010, Business/Economics, Food Drugs and Cosmetics, Hein's Electronic Documents Reprint Series, Intellectual and Industrial Property admin

An FTC Study

The use of generic drugs has increased exponentially over the past 20 years. When the Hatch-Waxman Amendments were enacted in 1984 to create opportunities for market entry by generic drug manufacturers, generic drugs accounted for 19% of the prescriptions filled for pharmaceutical products. In 2002, when this work was published, they comprised more than 47% of the prescriptions filled. Despite that success, several brand name and generic drug companies arranged anti-competitive agreements to keep certain generic drugs off the market, taking advantage of two exploitable provisions of Hatch-Waxman. Their actions forced the FTC to take antitrust actions against these companies and led to Generic Drug Entry Prior to Patent Expiration: An FTC Study,

Antitrust Enforcement and Intellectual Property Rights

2010, Intellectual and Industrial Property, Trade Regulation admin

Promoting Innovation and Competition
U.S. Department of Justice and the Federal Trade Commission

Over the past several decades, antitrust enforcers and the courts have come to recognize that intellectual property laws and antitrust laws share the same fundamental goals of enhancing consumer welfare and promoting innovation. This recognition signaled a significant shift from the view that was held earlier in the twentieth century, when the goals of antitrust and intellectual property law were viewed as incompatible. On April 17, 2007, the Federal Trade Commission and Department of Justice issued a long-awaited joint report on Antitrust Enforcement and Intellectual Property Rights. This report reaffirms enforcement policy set forth in the FTC and DOJ’s 1995 Antitrust Guidelines for the Licensing of Intellectual Property.

Art Law

2009, Intellectual and Industrial Property, Legal Education admin

Cases and Materials
By: Leonard DuBoff, Sherri Burr, and Michael Murray

Just as opinions over what constitutes “great art” are subjective, the laws that govern its creation and ownership also have been left up to personal interpretation in many cases. For this reason, the authors compiled Art Law: Cases and Materials, an exceptional casebook designed to teach the basics of art law and enlighten artists about their rights. This book’s ten chapters focus on developing and defining the legal contours for protecting art. Among the many pertinent topics examined are legal definitions of art, copyright protection, cultural property, and moral and economic rights. More than 180 cases are referenced throughout the book,

Intellectual Property Law in the European Union

2009, European Community, Intellectual and Industrial Property admin

By: Bryan Harris

Intellectual Property Law in the European Union is the culmination of years of Harris’s exhaustive research and is a guide to policies governing intellectual properties in European Union nations. Developed as a textbook and sourcebook for U.S. law students, this work reviews the gradual, incremental stages of consolidation and the creation of a “common market” in the EU, an occurrence that has led to difficulties in the establishment and enforcement of IP law. Harris, who was involved in primary and secondary legislation as well as the implementation and institutionalization of IP law, cites landmark cases on trademark, patent, and copyright law. This work is a valuable addition to any law library or collection on IP law.

The Eligibility of DNA Sequence Discoveries for Federal Patent Protection

2009, Intellectual and Industrial Property, Legal Education, Legal Research Guides, Medical Jurisprudence admin

A Legal Research Guide
By: Andrew Auchincloss Lundgren

In 1953, James Dewey Watson discovered the structure of DNA and launched an amazing era of scientific discovery that continues to this day. Aside from its implications for science, his findings also led to developments in the field of patent law, as debate arose regarding the patentability of these DNA sequencing discoveries. Several questions on this topic are still being debated: Can naturally occurring substances, such as DNA sequences, really be patented even though they are not actually invented? What effects do patent rights to individual genes have on advances in biochemical and medical research? Utilizing both print and electronic resources, this work addresses these issues and takes the reader through the development of a functional research strategy.
