Problems around patents on natural substances (dutch site).
The Neem Foundation is dedicated to the task of promoting the Neem Tree as a sustainable solution to global ecological and health concerns. The efforts of the Foundation are aimed to build on natural alternatives to ensure the health and well-being of man, animal, plant and environment.
The United States and India are currently involved in a biopiracy dispute over the rights to a tree indigenous to the Indian subcontinent, the neem tree. While the neem tree has been used in India for over 2000 years for various purposes such as pesticides, spermicides and toothbrushes, a US company has been suing Indian companies for producing the emulsion because they have a patent on the process. The dispute is over the rights of companies to conduct research and development by using patents against the interest of the people who live at the source of the resource. To what extent can multinational companies claim and patent resources from the develping countries, like India? The movement around the issue of the neem tree and trade-related aspects of intellectual property rights (TRIPS) represents a challenge to the developing countries.
