Contend with what? A Hep-C vaccine? Or are you whining again about companies making money to recoup their investment? Or are you worried about a rogue 3rd world nation duplicating a well known, well researched medicine and mass producing it cheap & robbing the company of their due profits? Juxtapid isn't aspirin. It is closely held & closely controlled, as is the IP relating to it.
Countries like India will lose access to ALL medicines if they aren't careful as companies will treat them like North Korea, Vietnam, China, and Russia that also don't respect patents & IP and therefore suffer across their society using outdated technology.
