Accordo trips, brevetti e resistenze interne in India: uno scenario frastagliato
This paper deals with the “difficult relationship” between India and pharmaceutical patents. Throughout the article, the strictly juridical dimension of the problem is let on the background. The aim is to highlight the multifarious, complex and stratified reasons of Indian resistance towards a strong intellectual property protection for medicines. The roots of said behavior go from cultural motives to pharmaceutical industries’ unfair practices, from sanitarian and humanitarian aspects to the peculiar social and economic Indian situation.
