Chapter 14: IP policies for large bioresources: the fiction, fantasy, and future of openness
This chapter aims to bring the issue of IP policies for large bioresources out of the long shadows of rhetoric about openness. It will highlight two fictions: first, that the idea of openness is clearly defined; second, that organizations are committed to openness. It will also highlight the fantasy that harmonization of bioresources’ access policies is feasible and desirable. The chapter will conclude by outlining future research to improve openness and IP policies for large Gx and SB bioresources.
