Re: patents are for satan worshippers
Well done, never seen someone so ignorant of the real world in my life (at let's face it, there's a lot of competition on here).
Let take someone like GSK.
Their annual research budget is in the region of £4-5billion, not £4-5, or £4-5000 but £4-5 BILLION (a bigger budget than most nations as a whole spend on R&D)
Now scrap all the patents as some retard may think is a great plan.
So, for example the have spent £20billion on a cure for cancer over several years, and release a very expensive drug (even if they sold it for as little as £100 each they would never make the money back).
However little factory in Pakistan or China, decides to clone it and as they have spent FA on R&D can sell it for £10 a pill, pretty much stopping all sales of GSK's product.
So do tell, why on earth would someone like GSK spend billions on a product, when they know it will most likely put them out of business? As a result, we don't get the cures for cancer, HIV, or the next Flu epidemic.
So come on Genius, without patents, fix this issue?
