   Principle on intellectual property right protection(IPRs)

All information related to compound data is confidential information, which is not only the core of developing intellectual property rights (IPRs), but also the technological foundation for mobilizing nation's efforts in building a large-scale compound library. IPRs must be fully respected.

In principle, the Chinese National Compound Library (CNCL, party 1) will not share IPRs belonging to the user (party 2). In order to protect the interests of the compound owner (party 3), it is the responsibility of the user (party 2) to engage in discussions with the owner (party 3) in good faith once a hit is identified by party 1.

All IPRs of compounds stored by CNCL will be fully respected. Thus the commercialization of hit compounds will in general follow policies and practices the inventor institutions.

In the case of hits identified from commercially available compounds, the development interests reside with the party that first stores them in the CNCL. For hits discovered from known compounds, CNCL retains the rights if they were independently acquired by and already present in the core library. In the case of other non- commercially available known compounds, rights belong to the original owner. In any event, the owner of new chemical entities or proprietary compounds controls both relevant IPRs and development interests.
