Lets define
“The application of science and technology to living
organisms, as well as parts, products and models there of,
to alter living or non-living materials for the production of
knowledge, goods and services”
Biotechnology!
(Source: “A framework for biotechnology statistics”, OECD, Paris, 2005)
According to European Commission,
biotechnology can be divided into
3 major streams.
Green Biotechnology
The use of genetically
altered plants or animals to
produce more
environmentally-friendly
farming solutions as an
alternative to traditional
agriculture, horticulture,
and animal breeding
processes.
Red Biotechnology
Refers to the use of
organisms in genetic
engineering processes in
order to design and
manufacture
pharmaceutical products
like antibiotics and
vaccines.
White Biotechnology
Encompasses the
application of
biotechnology-based tools
to traditional industrial
processes to make
intermediate and end-
products more efficiently
with less
environmental impacts by
making use of renewable
resources.
What is Intellectual Property?
• Examples of intellectual property
– Include an author's copyright on a book
– A distinctive logo design representing a soft drink company and its products,
– Unique design elements of a web site
– A patent on the process to manufacture chewing gum.
Intellectual property is an
intangible creation of the
human mind, usually
expressed or translated into a
tangible form that is assigned
certain rights of property.
What is IPR?
A general term covering Patents,
Copyright, Trademark, Industrial
designs, Geographical indications,
Protection of layout design of
integrated circuits and Protection
of undisclosed information (trade
secrets).
It refer to the legal ownership by a
person or business of an
invention/discovery attached to
particular product or processes
which protects the owner against
unauthorized copying or imitation.
(Source: Business Guide to Uruguay Round, WTO, 1995)

to disclose the invention to the public in a manner
that enables others, skilled in the art, to replicate
the invention.
• The patent system is designed to balance the
interests of applicants and the interests of society
Conditions to be patentable

SomeStatistics
SomeStatistics
Compulsory patenting
• CL are made to prevent the abuse of patents as
monopoly & to make way for commercial
exploitation of the invention
• Any person can make an application for grant of CL. It
is given for a term of 3 yrs
• Cl is given for requirements of public, if product not
available for reasonable price, if patented work is not
in territorial jurisdiction of India
CL maybe granted under certain specific
circumstances such as:

makes a substantial contribution is prevented; or
• The establishment of commercial or industrial activities
in the country is unfairly prejudiced
Govt.’s Supreme Power
• Any patent issued by India can be used by gov. for its
purpose with a order
• If gov. uses an invention before patenting it in India

agreement on royalty is made by Gov. and party in
HC
• Gov. can also undertake any patents if its contrary to
public interest of gov or policies
Competition Policy of India

practices and agreements by way of
exerting dominance and abusing this
right relates directly to the Agri-
biotechnology community in India

use restriction technologies (GURT) by
Section 4 of CP Act 2002, DBT issued a
circular for banning GURT based on this
act
• Bt gene developed & patented by Monsanto was sold in
India at Rs.900 for 450gms of seeds
• MRTP Commission was approached to investigate on
2006 and found that ‘commodity is overpriced’
• followed by various state governments imposing price
controls under the Seed Control Order under Essential
Commodities Act
• SC of India has not considered it fit to interfere with the
orders of the MRTP Commission.
Competition Policy of India

TRIPS Agreement
• The Agreement on Trade-Related Aspects of Intellectual
Property Rights (TRIPS) is an international agreement by WTO
that sets down minimum standards for many forms of IP
regulation as applied to nationals of other WTO Members. It
was negotiated at the end of the Uruguay Round of the General
Agreement on Tariffs and Trade (GATT) in 1994.
• Specifically, TRIPS requires WTO members to provide
– copyright rights, covering content producers including performers
producers of sound recordings & broadcasting organizations
– GI, including appellations of origin
– industrial designs; IC layout-designs
– Patents, new plant varieties
– TM and Trade secrets
• TRIPS also specifies enforcement procedures,
remedies, and dispute resolution procedures.
• In 2001, developing countries,
concerned that developed
countries were insisting on an
overly narrow reading of TRIPS,
initiated a round of talks that
resulted in the Doha Declaration.
The Doha declaration is a WTO
statement that clarifies the
scope of TRIPS, stating for
example that TRIPS can and
should be interpreted in light of
the goal "to promote access to
medicines for all.“
• DD also ensured that developing
nations can issue CL on
inventions related to HIV/AIDS
and other epidemics
Doha
Declaration•It also challenges TRIPS and allowed developing
countries to make its own regime for IPR
•It enabled countries to acquire patent under
emergency situations it faces
•The a of amendment of trips is currently
extended since only 45 member nations are
accepting the amendment
•Since then all developed countries including
India stood along with Doha declaration

IPR & Corporate monopoly
''Granting exclusive patent
rights amounts to stealing
economic options of daily
survival from the
developing world”
-Dr. Vandana Shiva-
India’s new IPR policy
• After series of Modi-Obama visits America promised of $ 4
billion investment
• The attack on India’s intellectual property rights became
intense after 2012, when the Indian patent controller
allowed local production of an expensive cancer drug
which reduced its price by 97 percent (Novartis, Imatinib).
The controller refused to grant patent to American
pharmaceutical company, Gilead, for an extremely
expensive drug for hepatitis C. The drug costs $ 1000 a pill
in the US, while it can be produced locally at $ 1 a pill.
• India is on a “priority watch list” in America’s special 301
report, that identifies countries which do not provide
"adequate and effective" protection of IPR or "fair and
equitable market access to US persons that rely upon IPR.”
India’s new IPR policy
• It’s a globally acknowledged fact
that India’s existing IPR policy
regime, although against US & EU,
has been a lifesaver for not just
Indians, but also people from other
developing countries
• Cancer drug Glivec, sold by Swiss
Pharma company Novartis for more
than Rs one lakh, is now available
in the generic from for about Rs
8,800 and its price is likely to fall
further
• Affordable Care Act (ACA), US by
Obama
How India’s
New IPR Policy
can cause a
genocide in S.Africa
India’s new IPR policyWith Indian generic companies entering in
voluntary licensing agreements with Gilead
Sciences, the price of the drug was brought down
from $1,000 per pill to $900 for a 12-week course
for Indian patients.
Cipla is known for offering generic anti-retrovirals
at $304 a year, or less than a dollar a day, when
Pfizer was charging nearly $12,000 dollars per
patient, per annum.
How India’s
New IPR Policy
can cause a
genocide in S.Africa
Minister
Aaron
Motsoaledi
says,
“Yes, I called it genocide because I was showing the number of
people in sub-Saharan Africa who depend on generic anti-
retrovirals, specially generics from India. I was showing them how
many people will die if the policies change.” For instance, out of
the 8 million people who are on anti-retrovirals in the world, 6
million are in Sub-Saharan Africa, most of them alive because of
generics from India. If these six million do not have access to
affordable generic anti-retrovirals, all of them will be gone. I
mean, that’s genocide
Electrified the
global health
community a by
producing cocktails
of AIDS medicines
for $1 per day.
Dr. Yusuf K. Hamied
the modern world
Robin Hood
Now it is 20 cents per
day, & more than 6
million people in
developing world now
receive treatment.
In the past Indian companies
would have launched generic
versions in the developing
world at lower rates, but in
2005 India adopted WTO-
TRIPS obligations, making it
difficult for Indian companies
to make generics of patented
drugs. But the country held
on to crucial rights, including
the right to grant a
compulsory licence to local
manufacturers in case of
health emergencies
The seeds of
Vandana Shiva
She started The Navdanya is a
movement for Earth Democracy based
on the philosophy of
'Vasudhaiv Kutumbakam' .
To protect the India's biodiversity based
food heritage through Bija Swaraj, Ann
Swaraj, Bhu Swaraj and Gyan swaraj
Through 'Bija Swaraj' they have created
122 Community Seed Banks in 18 states
of India and Bhutan.
They also distributed the seeds of hope
to the farmers after disasters like
Odisha Super Cyclone, Tsunami, Floods
in Uttarakhand, Phailin in Odisha, Earth
quack of Nepal disaster without any
money in return.
The seeds of
Vandana Shiva
• Since 1991 they have been campaigning against GM crops and food in
India. Working with citizens' movements, grassroot organisations,
NGOs and governments, they have made significant contributions to
the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) and the Biosafety
Protocol.
• During the WTO Hong Kong Ministerial, Navdanya joined 740 other
organisations in presenting their opposition to the WTO's stance on
GMOs.
• Biopiracy: Navdanya started the campaign against biopiracy with the
Neem Campaign in 1994 and mobilised 1,00,000 signatures against
neem patents and filed a legal opposition against the USDA and WR
Grace patent on the fungicidal properties of neem (no. 436257 B1) in
the European Patent Office (EPO) at Munich, Germany.
• The patent on Neem was revoked in May 2000 and it was reconfirmed
on 8 March 2005 when the EPO revoked in entirety the controversial
patent, and adjudged that there was “no inventive step” involved in
the fungicide patent, thus confirming the ‘prior art’ of the use of
Neem.
The seeds of
Vandana Shiva
• The next victory against "biopiracy" for Navdanya came in October 2004 when
the European Patent Office in Munich revoked Monsanto’s patent on the
Indian variety of wheat “Nap Hal”.
• This was the third consecutive victory on the IPR front after Neem and
Basmati(Taxmati by Ricetec). Monsanto was assigned a patent (EP 0445929
B1) on wheat on 21 May 2003 by the European Patent Office in Munich under
the simple title “plants”.
• On January 27, 2004 Research Foundation for Science Technology and Ecology
(RFSTE) along with Greenpeace and Bharat Krishak Samaj (BKS) filed a petition
at the European Patent Office (EPO), Munich, challenging the patent rights
given to Monsanto on Indian Landrace of wheat, Nap Hal. The patent was
revoked in October 2004.
• Now leading a no GMO banana campaign against GM banana with enriched
iron

(Source: “A framework for biotechnology statistics”, OECD, Paris, 2005) According to European Commission, biotechnology can be divided into 3 major streams.
  • 3. Green Biotechnology The use of genetically altered plants or animals to produce more environmentally-friendly farming solutions as an alternative to traditional agriculture, horticulture, and animal breeding processes. Red Biotechnology Refers to the use of organisms in genetic engineering processes in order to design and manufacture pharmaceutical products like antibiotics and vaccines. White Biotechnology Encompasses the application of biotechnology-based tools to traditional industrial processes to make intermediate and end- products more efficiently with less environmental impacts by making use of renewable resources.

  • 29. IPR & Corporate monopoly ''Granting exclusive patent rights amounts to stealing economic options of daily survival from the developing world” -Dr. Vandana Shiva-
  • 30. India’s new IPR policy • After series of Modi-Obama visits America promised of $ 4 billion investment • The attack on India’s intellectual property rights became intense after 2012, when the Indian patent controller allowed local production of an expensive cancer drug which reduced its price by 97 percent (Novartis, Imatinib). The controller refused to grant patent to American pharmaceutical company, Gilead, for an extremely expensive drug for hepatitis C. The drug costs $ 1000 a pill in the US, while it can be produced locally at $ 1 a pill. • India is on a “priority watch list” in America’s special 301 report, that identifies countries which do not provide "adequate and effective" protection of IPR or "fair and equitable market access to US persons that rely upon IPR.”
  • 31. India’s new IPR policy • It’s a globally acknowledged fact that India’s existing IPR policy regime, although against US & EU, has been a lifesaver for not just Indians, but also people from other developing countries • Cancer drug Glivec, sold by Swiss Pharma company Novartis for more than Rs one lakh, is now available in the generic from for about Rs 8,800 and its price is likely to fall further • Affordable Care Act (ACA), US by Obama
  • 32. How India’s New IPR Policy can cause a genocide in S.Africa India’s new IPR policyWith Indian generic companies entering in voluntary licensing agreements with Gilead Sciences, the price of the drug was brought down from $1,000 per pill to $900 for a 12-week course for Indian patients.
  • 33. Cipla is known for offering generic anti-retrovirals at $304 a year, or less than a dollar a day, when Pfizer was charging nearly $12,000 dollars per patient, per annum. How India’s New IPR Policy can cause a genocide in S.Africa
  • 34. Minister Aaron Motsoaledi says, “Yes, I called it genocide because I was showing the number of people in sub-Saharan Africa who depend on generic anti- retrovirals, specially generics from India. I was showing them how many people will die if the policies change.” For instance, out of the 8 million people who are on anti-retrovirals in the world, 6 million are in Sub-Saharan Africa, most of them alive because of generics from India. If these six million do not have access to affordable generic anti-retrovirals, all of them will be gone. I mean, that’s genocide
  • 35. Electrified the global health community a by producing cocktails of AIDS medicines for $1 per day. Dr. Yusuf K. Hamied the modern world Robin Hood Now it is 20 cents per day, & more than 6 million people in developing world now receive treatment.
  • 36. In the past Indian companies would have launched generic versions in the developing world at lower rates, but in 2005 India adopted WTO- TRIPS obligations, making it difficult for Indian companies to make generics of patented drugs. But the country held on to crucial rights, including the right to grant a compulsory licence to local manufacturers in case of health emergencies
  • 37. The seeds of Vandana Shiva She started The Navdanya is a movement for Earth Democracy based on the philosophy of 'Vasudhaiv Kutumbakam' . To protect the India's biodiversity based food heritage through Bija Swaraj, Ann Swaraj, Bhu Swaraj and Gyan swaraj Through 'Bija Swaraj' they have created 122 Community Seed Banks in 18 states of India and Bhutan. They also distributed the seeds of hope to the farmers after disasters like Odisha Super Cyclone, Tsunami, Floods in Uttarakhand, Phailin in Odisha, Earth quack of Nepal disaster without any money in return.
  • 38. The seeds of Vandana Shiva • Since 1991 they have been campaigning against GM crops and food in India. Working with citizens' movements, grassroot organisations, NGOs and governments, they have made significant contributions to the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) and the Biosafety Protocol. • During the WTO Hong Kong Ministerial, Navdanya joined 740 other organisations in presenting their opposition to the WTO's stance on GMOs. • Biopiracy: Navdanya started the campaign against biopiracy with the Neem Campaign in 1994 and mobilised 1,00,000 signatures against neem patents and filed a legal opposition against the USDA and WR Grace patent on the fungicidal properties of neem (no. 436257 B1) in the European Patent Office (EPO) at Munich, Germany. • The patent on Neem was revoked in May 2000 and it was reconfirmed on 8 March 2005 when the EPO revoked in entirety the controversial patent, and adjudged that there was “no inventive step” involved in the fungicide patent, thus confirming the ‘prior art’ of the use of Neem.
  • 39. The seeds of Vandana Shiva • The next victory against "biopiracy" for Navdanya came in October 2004 when the European Patent Office in Munich revoked Monsanto’s patent on the Indian variety of wheat “Nap Hal”. • This was the third consecutive victory on the IPR front after Neem and Basmati(Taxmati by Ricetec). Monsanto was assigned a patent (EP 0445929 B1) on wheat on 21 May 2003 by the European Patent Office in Munich under the simple title “plants”. • On January 27, 2004 Research Foundation for Science Technology and Ecology (RFSTE) along with Greenpeace and Bharat Krishak Samaj (BKS) filed a petition at the European Patent Office (EPO), Munich, challenging the patent rights given to Monsanto on Indian Landrace of wheat, Nap Hal. The patent was revoked in October 2004. • Now leading a no GMO banana campaign against GM banana with enriched iron
