India and the Patent Wars
Reception, Reading, and Signing
In a world where so many people are dependent on affordable drugs produced in India, India and the Patents Wars explores struggles between pharmaceutical companies in India, the US and elsewhere over drug patents and access to essential medicine for the world’s poor. Author Murphy Halliburton, a Hastings resident, also examines controversies over piracy of indigenous medical knowledge, such as India’s ayurvedic medical system, by drug companies.
