I've Googled the term, but find no meaningful reference to it.

As far as I'm aware, a patent is, by it's very nature, restrictive -- meaning that the phase I quote is tautological (hence my alarmist claim.)

I am aware of a 'non-restrictive patent', but that's a special case, not the norm.

Correct me if I'm wrong.

Well, Justin, you might want to find out what this term, "restrictive patent" actually means, before you brush off the article and label it "alarmist".  Kind of tragic how words have very specific meanings that can affect people's lives, but it's true.

The way I see it, though, this is just a smoke screen, even a "red herring"  to keep us from looking at the far bigger picture, a view that questions for instance, why these pernicious drugs are being prescribed to people most likely suffering from other causes that might be more easily (and less painfully) resolved.

Back to generic vs. name brand, though...Of course the huge pharmaceutical industry has plenty invested in pushing the highest priced drugs it possibly can on patients. For more info on just how much profit they are happy to make, see here.

This issue of generic vs. latest brand name is actually minor in the bigger scheme of health issues and AIDS in particular. It's kind of like watching a jackal and a wolf fighting over the carcass of a lamb, the jackal being generic drugs, the wolf, brand-name and the lamb, well, that might be you, though I assure you it will not be me.

If you care about your health and the health of others, I urge you to check this out: http://www.duesberg.com/index.html There are many other sources there to read through, too.

OH, and Justin, if you go to the page of other links you can find many other sources. I personally met the woman who heads www.AliveAndWell.org with her husband, Robin Scovill. They are all very healthy people despite her being "diagnosed with AIDS" due to a positive HIV test, many years ago.

Hey, I just saw that there is a showing of a movie with Ed Asner about this issue coming up in November. Hey, Skeptics, why don't we all go and then we can make an educated decision based on more information! Here's the info: http://forums.questioningaids.com/showpost.php?p=45437

Let's make this an event! What do you think?

For Truth,
Juliet

Alarmist article.

I wonder how a 'restrictive patent' differs from a patent of the common-garden variety?

Interesting timing. She did write her rant before this story broke.

 

According to leaked documents from the talks, U.S. negotiators are seeking to impose a set of restrictive intellectual property laws that would help American drug companies secure long-term monopolies overseas. The result? Higher prices for drugs. That's good for corporate profits, but disastrous for relief programs like PEPFAR that depend on cheaper generic medications to treat the global poor.

Yeah. And 9/11 was an inside job, and the Illuminati control the world.
