ABC RN (Australia) Interview on “A Global Patent Market”

ABC RN in Australia interviewed on “A Global Patent Market” as a consequence of the Op-Ed together with Edmund Phelps, Columbia.

A new report argues that now ‘more than ever the world needs a framework of trade rules to facilitate the exchange of ideas across borders.

Eskil Ullberg is the co-author of that report and he believes that a cross -border technology exchange based on patent protection and enforcement mechanisms could release the creativity of both developed and developing countries.

So what would have to happen for this to work and does the WTO agree?
