    Separate thread crated as it is a potential low point which needs to be tracked separately.

    India will see more of this when export to USA/EU increases. Protectionism is everywhere. USA tolerates only to those countries that are under their protection such as old-day Taiwan and South Korea and to some degree Japan at the very beginning of her development. The reality is simple. The one who invents it could not manufacture it economically.

    Before we go off hand it is first necessary to understand one thing

    1) DK issue is a seperate issue and yes she was humiliated.
    2) Reserving the rights to produce medicine is another separate issue.

    This second issue has come up due to pressure from European companies and companies within usofa. One has to first understand that these pharmaceutical companies, which make big profits (which is not wrong) and spend a lot of money on research, are putting pressure on usofa to come hard on India.

    >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

    And one should remember, it's election time in america. The question here should be whether Obama will pull the trigger, especially when there is a medical, let's say, revolution that's happening in usofa. Will Obama a Nobel piece prize winner rid the poor people of a 3rd world country off affordable drugs?

    Another (sad) question that comes to my mind is that if Obama pulls the plug, will India have sufficient powers to act against usofa. Because usofa doesn't have anything to lose here.

    Indian Supreme Court Rejects Trivial 'Evergreening' Of Pharma Patents | Techdirt

    Specifically:
    So make a change for the sake of making a change, and get your patent revived, and enjoy money for nothing at all. Patents still exist, and you can use it to earn money, but not for looting the crap out of the public. Refer:

    Novartis loses legal battle over Glivec, huge boost for local drug cos - Economic Times
    Trying to paint this as stifling innovation is pure BS, patents are still allowed for innovation, patents are not allowed to suck the blood of people.These drugs are even unaffordable for people in the west, they should go up against their govt which is compliant in this merciless looting.

    @Freekarma:

    I agree with what you are saying. I was giving a perspective of this issue in general.

    Why suddenly has this been raised?
    What action will Obama take?
    Is this related to DK? so on and so forth.

    US trade representative has not warned India: Anand Sharma - The Times of India

    Reuters | Feb 10, 2014, 07.11PM IST
    NEW DELHI: The US trade representative has not warned India about a threatened trade enforcement action linked to the country and due to be announced later on Monday, India's trade minister said.

    Anand Sharma told reporters on Monday he had not been informed about the move, which could further rile ties after an incident last year involving the arrest and strip-search of an Indian consul.

    US trade representative Michael Froman will discuss the action at a news conference at 2pm (1900 GMT), his office said on Sunday night. The office of the US trade representative said it could offer no additional details.

    Last week, the US chamber of commerce called on Washington to ratchet up pressure on India over intellectual property rights, reflecting US corporate anger at Indian companies that produce cheap generic versions of medicines.

    • A lot of medical research happens in the US universities, funded by grants. These grants are measly sums, and students researchers get paid for 20 hours a week, while toiling for 60 or 70 hours a week, for years. All of this happens all over the US, and the US tries to look the other way, focusing on blackmailing foreign diplomats instead.
    • Now, these research works, once completed, are taken over by the pharma cartels. They then make minor incremental improvements or tweakings, with no significant improvement in cure.
    • The US government churns out patents at an industrial scale for these inconsequential minor tweakings, like a soap factory producing soap at a massive scale. It's like, "patents are a dime, a dozen." This is possible because US laws are designed to help the wealthy profiteering companies, whose primary aim is not to save lives, but to enrich their coffers.
    • These companies, show spurious claims as to the expense related to the development of these medicines.
    • Now, these companies lobby their governments to apply their convoluted laws on the rest of the world, so that people are forced to die if they cannot afford these severely overpriced medicines.
    This is how the patent works in the US. It is not science. It is not intellect. It is pure money laundering over spurious claims. India needs to tell the US to stop blowing hot air and focus on saving lives, not making profits.
