Science embraced: patent policy merits a brief mention
By Doug Calhoun for sticK
(sticK - 7 March 2012 ) The McGuinness Institute is to be congratulated on its exhaustive analysis of science in New Zealand, “Report 9: Science Embraced: Government-funded Science Under the Microscope”.
The report will no doubt generate considerable debate.
In focusing just on the very brief patent policy aspects of the report I feel a bit presumptuous - like Spike Milligan when he wrote “Hitler: My part in his downfall.” But it is the patent bit about which I would like to continue the debate.
For sticK – science, technology, innovation &
commercialisation KNOWLEDGE - is a new Wellington based
news service concentrating on following the money from ideas
to income. Contact editor Peter Kerr at peter.kerr055 @
