Conflict-Free and Confidential Pharmaceutical Experts
Under the Hatch-Waxman Act, patent holders see great value in avoiding costly litigation against an infringing generic manufacturer by paying the generic to halt pharmaceutical production for a certain period. It’s a “pay-for-delay” agreement that allows the innovator to keep full reign on the market for several years. According to SCOTUS, if the payment is so large it appears to be an “indicator of power” or exhibits “lack of confidence” in the patent, it may not be allowed.
