Abstract

The COVID-19 pandemic is having a two-fold impact on the world of IP: after an initial retreat towards the classic utilitarian model, focused on the utility of property to its holder, the modern utilitarian model, focused on societal utilities of property, is rising in such a way that IP could now, more than ever, constitute a geopolitical tool as much as a potential economic lever.

Keywords: COVID-19, Intellectual Property, License Agreement, Patent Law, Compulsory License
