Every Covid vaccine I read about - including that developed by Oxford University - has IP all over it.
If a vaccine appears which works, nobody would be able to create it without permission from and payment to a corporation.
There's not a single news outlet I can see discussing how IP laws restrict the solution to a worldwide pandemic.
@malin Hmm... Ah. Yes. I know this one. Abolish copyright!
@eviloatmeal That's the mountain, but I'm just wishing media would discuss the possibility of taking this basic step.
@malin that's probably how one of the minor evolutionary filters work.
either we die out or we overcome this sharade.
@comrad There's another option: we exist alongside the parasitic IP laws forever. It's not the only parasite which evolves alongside its host.
