X. COMPULSORY LICENSING
Compulsory licensing enables a government to license to a company, government agency or other party the right to use a patent without the title holder’s consent. A compulsory license must be granted by a competent authority to a designated person, who should generally compensate the title-holder through payment of a remuneration. Compulsory licenses do not deny patent holders the right to act against non-licensed parties.
