> The submission focuses on the importance of acknowledging the governing
> role that human rights plays in the shape of the new patent policy; on the
> importance of several flexibilities that should be included in the final
> policy (including substantive search and examination, strong provisions on
> patent scope and inventive step, and strong exceptions in areas such as
> government use, using the US’s 28 USC 1498 as an example).
