Abstract

This chapter builds upon the basic rules for compulsory licenses under TRIPS (available at http://ssrn.com/abstract= 1922803) to consider one reason TRIPS-compliant compulsory licenses remain controversial. It introduces two competing perspectives of patents as a possible social schema that can help anticipate (or at least better understand) not only controversy, but misstatements concerning the TRIPS rules for compulsory licenses.
