INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY TO
IMPROVE LIVES
“This research will – among other
things – look at, firstly, how copyright
law can be enhanced to enable better
access to educational resources,”
Ncube explained. “Secondly, how
patent law can be improved
to better facilitate access to medicines.
Throughout these academic pursuits,
Ncube refined her interest in the
way that intellectual property law
can positively impact access to
education, health and economic
opportunities.
