The COVID-19 pandemic poses significant challenges to our privacy and intellectual property regimes. Seton Hall Law’s Institute for Privacy Protection and Gibbons Institute of Law, Science & Technology invite you to join panel discussions with legal academics, practitioners, and government officials to evaluate the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on privacy and intellectual property. Efforts to contain the COVID-19 pandemic can impact privacy rights of patients, those at risk, and the general population. Panel One will include topics addressing: What are the duties of healthcare providers to report patients' COVID-19 information? How should governments track infected individuals and others at high-risk? How secure are databases containing COVID-19 information? Patenting drugs and vaccines incentivizes innovation, but patents increase prices and affect availability. Panel Two will discuss the options of patenting COVID-19 drugs and vaccines as well as other alternatives pertinent in times of health emergencies, including compulsory licenses, voluntary licenses, and patent pools.
Thursday, September 17, 2020, from 12:00-2:30 p.m. EST.
Virtual event on Zoom. Link and access code will be provided upon registration.
Panel One - Balancing Privacy and Public Health
Panel Two - Intellectual Property: Incentives and Access to Vaccines and Treatments
