"Major pharmacutical corporations are in the buisiness to make money." They do get patents, but it is my understanding those patents don't last forever. That's why we have generic drugs as well, right?
Do you think they would be creating as many life saving drugs if they were doing it to break even? I just don't think that is the way things work. That may make them greedy and inhumane, but it also makes them human.

Yeah, I was on the fence for a while about that, what with him being a menace to society at large, but then I thought there might be some infinitessimally possibility that he might change and be less repulsive to humanity.

alienator wrote:Not to get too far off topic, but drug companies get 7 years of exclusivity with their patents. At least that was the idea behind the law. However with copious greasing of political wheels--as is common with the drug companies--these patents are extended for another 7 years.....and another 7 years....and another 7 years.
