This Briefing will discuss the terms of the Open COVID Pledge and how it was developed. It will discuss how the principles of collaborative licensing (including Creative Commons and open source licensing) can be applied to assist in this challenging environment.  Faculty will also discuss issues that companies may wish to consider in evaluating whether to develop their own collaborative licenses and how companies, institutions and individuals can all help to fight the COVID-19 pandemic by contributing to the Open COVID Pledge and relevant licenses. The issues to be discussed will be:

  • Uniform license vs. custom license 
  • IP rights in the license 
  • Scope of the license 
  • Term of the license 
  • What does the future hold
