    Martin Shkreli.......cowson

    Judging by social media, Martin Shkreli, the 32-year-old chief executive of Turing Pharmaceuticals, may be the most hated man in America right now.
    He's been called a "morally bankrupt sociopath", a "scumbag" a "garbage monster" and "everything that is wrong with capitalism." And those are some of the tamer comments.

    Developed in the 50's.....................excuse me ladies......bastard.

    Why is there not a law that allows drugs to run out of licence like the copy right laws ?

    I thought there was. Surely it comes under the Patents laws.

    The patent law has been applied. The drug has had just one manufacturer for decades.
    It will take other producers a while to ramp up, but they will be out to take advantage of the price hike.
    It may not be so much that I've conceded your point as that you just can't hear me rolling my eyes.

    I just find it puzzling that it was apparently developed in the 50s, yet a U.S. patent only lasts for 20 years. Therefore it should have been open to the general market by the 70s.

    It IS open to the general market, but no other company in the US had seen fit to produce it. It actually has a fairly narrow market, and most companies did not see it as profitable to produce, and the FDA had not approved any outside sources.

    The pharmaceutical world finally has its own version of SCO.

    The watch of your vision has become reasonable today.

    It’s normal. You must provoke. You must insult the belief of all monotheists. You must make fun of the belief of all monotheists.

    Them too.

    I was thinking originally of https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SCO%E2..._controversies, purely in terms of the degree of perpetual public odium they attracted.
