The Indian Union Ministry of Science and Technology has introduced The Protection and Utilization of Public Funded Intellectual Property Bill, 2008 in Rajya Sabha. After the enactment of this bill, any recipient of government grants for the purpose of research and development, shall seek patent protection of the intellectual property generated and commercialize the same within the stipulated time. This bill is being discussed by various intellectuals and agencies in India and abroad. I am not going to discuss about it in this paper but wish to discuss more about the access to the peer-reviewed publications arising from publicly funded research.
