Welcome to CC’s newest legal and advocacy project - the Open COVID Pledge (OCP). In this panel discussion, we’ll discuss the origins, design, and goals of the OCP. We’ll discuss its unique value and place in the new global IP ecosystem and its potential for fundamentally changing the way that intellectual property rights are handled in times of global crises when responsiveness and innovative solutions are imperative. We’ll also discuss CC’s stewardship goals and ways in which we are striving to make real change both in the development of COVID-19 solutions and in establishing a model that can serve as a case study for tackling other other crises, such as climate change, clean energy and natural disasters. This will set the foundation for a subsequent session and workshop on internationalizing the OCP in close collaboration with the CC Global Network and other partners. The session will include contributions from early adopters who have pledged important IPR in support of diagnosing, preventing, containing, and treating COVID-19 and their motivations for doing so.
