The intricacies and ever-changing dynamics of patent law in emerging medical devices markets will discussed at length on the Ideas in Medicine site. As device markets become more complex and more innovations are produced, legislative and regulatory systems need to adapt to the changing marketplace in order to preserve and protect one of the most valued commodities for medical device manufacturers: intellectual property.
Nevertheless, the adequate protection of intellectual property is critical for the sustained viability of the medical device industry, especially in emerging markets. Device manufacturers have to contend with patent law and intellectual property protection in a developing market; such as China, India etc. There are also ongoing concerns about potential changes to patent law in already established markets, including the EU and the US.
Ideas in Medicine will help guide you through these processes.
