PORTO, Portugal — The European Union called on the United States Friday to start boosting its vaccine exports to contain the global COVID-19 crisis, and said that the U.S. backing of patent waivers would provide only a long-term solution at best. “We invite all those who engage in the debate of a waiver for (Intellectual Property) rights also to join us to commit to be willing to export a large share of what is being produced in that region,” said EU Commission President Ursula von der Leyen. In the wake of the U.S. backing calls to waive patents on vaccine technology, French President Emmanuel Macron summarized the view from Europe when he said at an EU summit in Porto, Portugal: “You can give the intellectual property to laboratories that do not know how to produce it. They won’t produce it tomorrow.” Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez gave the idea endorsed by U.S. President Joe Biden this week a guarded welcome, but he immediately added, “We believe it is insufficient. It should be more ambitious.” While the U.S. has kept a tight lid on exports of American-made vaccines so it can inoculate its own population first, the EU has become the world's leading provider, allowing about as many doses to go outside the 27-nation bloc as are kept for its 446 million inhabitants. Many EU nations, however, have demanded a stop to vaccine nationalism and export bans. Von der Leyen said that any patent waiver “will not bring a single dose of vaccine in the short and medium term." Macron said it was more important for Biden to work on exports. “The Anglo-Saxons block many of these ingredients" needed to make vaccines, the French leader said, referring to Washington and London. “Today, 100% of vaccines produced in the United States of America are for the American market.” European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen said this week that the EU had distributed about 200 million doses within the bloc while about the same amount had been exported abroad. “Around 50% of what is being produced in Europe is exported to almost 90 countries,” von der Leyen said, and called on Biden and other vaccine producing regions or nations to step up their effort. “We are the most generous in the world of developed nations. Europe should be proud of itself,” Macron said. The EU is trying to regain the diplomatic initiative on vaccines after Biden put it on the back foot with his surprising endorsement of lifting patent protections on COVID-19 vaccines, seeking to solve the problem of getting shots into the arms of people in poorer countries. EU leaders said they were ready to discuss the U.S. backing for proposals first submitted to the World Trade Organization by India and South Africa, but they said many other initiatives would be more effective at this point, ranging from ramping up production capacity to distributing raw materials. So far, they insisted, the issue of waiving patents is not a big problem. ___ Casert reported from Brussels. Raf Casert And Barry Hatton, The Associated Press

This week the Biden administration surprised many and came out in support of easing intellectual property protections around the development of COVID-19 vaccines. This is a move many experts say could make it easier for developing countries around the world to produce vaccines. But there is a risk to allowing patent waivers when it comes to vaccine development, says Sean Speer, fellow in residence at the Public Policy Forum. In this episode of Crisis Management, Speer says the move could potentially harm incentive "for future transformational drug discoveries which, as we've learned over the past year, we desperately need." Speer says the U.S. will likely have to compensate companies like Pfizer and Moderna that developed these vaccines, or else it may harm the profit-driven incentives behind pharmaceutical development.
TORONTO — Quarterly reports from Rogers, Bell Canada and Telus show their average monthly billing per mobile phone user was down in early 2021 compared with last year's first quarter. Each of the Big Three reported over recent weeks that they earned less from roaming fees because fewer customers are travelling during the pandemic. They similarly made less from overage fees as more customers switched to wireless plans with set data limits, which typically cost less than unlimited data plans. As a result, the average mobile bill per user at Bell slipped 3.4 per cent from last year to $70.34, the Telus average monthly mobile bill fell 4.4 per cent to $68.79 per user and the Rogers average fell 4.6 per cent to $62.13 per user. However, Telus chief financial officer Doug French said Friday after the company's first-quarter results were released that average revenue per mobile user will start moving up again. Each of the companies offers a wide range of mobile plans, with retail prices that change frequently, meaning individual bills can vary significantly. "We've continued to grow our customer base," French said. "We expect our revenue per customer to actually turn to be slightly positive next quarter." The three biggest telecom companies are under pressure from the Liberal government, which has given Bell, Rogers and Telus two years to lower wireless prices by 25 per cent from a 2020 benchmark. The latest quarterly analysis issued by the federal government, for the months of January, February and March, reported that some plans had met the 25 per cent target, while some prices were down as little as nine per cent compared with the benchmark. The analysis primarily tracks prices for the Big Three's flanker brands Virgin (Bell), Fido (Rogers) and Koodo (Telus) rather than the main brands that offer unlimited plans without overage fees. Critics of the Big Three say they've been able to use their market power — a combined 88 per cent of all subscribers in Canada — to keep overall wireless prices among the highest in the world. Rogers earlier this year announced a proposed takeover of Shaw Communications, whose Freedom wireless brand competes with the three largest carriers in some regions. Opponents of the deal as currently envisioned argue the loss of competition will lead to higher prices. Michael Geist, a law professor at the University of Ottawa and Canada Research Chair in internet and e-commerce law, said in March that a Rogers takeover of Shaw would clearly result in reduced competition in several major markets and higher prices.'' The three companies have argued that international price comparisons are based on faulty data analysis, but they've agreed to meet the federal target by early 2022. Mirko Bibic, who is CEO of both Bell Canada and its parent BCE Inc., also told shareholders at BCE's annual meeting in April that overall wireless prices are "most definitely down in a significant way." But Bibic also revealed in answer to a shareholder's question that there have been "a select number of price increases" — for certain add-on fees for its wireless services. "And that was to bring the prices of those add-ons in line with market rates being charged by our competitors," Bibic said. Bibic was referring to one-time or occasional fees for things like restoring service to an account that's been suspended, sometimes called a restoral or resumption fee. The total amount collected by the companies from these add-on fees, which typically include things like restoring service after a suspension for lack of payment, wasn't immediately available.
