Global Campaign Against India's Patent Act
A Global Day of Action was organised on 26 Feb 2005 to protest the Patents Amendment bill that is currently under consideration by Indian parliament. India is under pressure to comply with the TRIPS agreement on Intellectual Property Rights, as dictated by World Trade Organization (WTO). This peoples’ mobilization effort is aimed at building solidarity around pressurizing the Indian Government to reassess the Bill to take into account all the flexibilities offered by TRIPS. The bill in its current form is even more stringent than what the TRIPS regulations demand. Ideally, we believe it is in the best interest of people in India that TRIPS itself be eliminated altogether. More information
