Again, the CDC only holds jurisdiction in the USA.
Did you miss that bit?

There's are hundreds of vaccine patents from organisations, companies and government agencies across the world.
There are also patents issued by individuals.
What's your issue?

What's your issue?


Um... which word did you not understand? Let me refresh your memory:


...I also see much room for abuse,unintended consequences, and/or just inefficiency....


Seems pretty clear to me. But let me expand just a little for you. Patents represent control. Control can be abused... can result in negative unintended consequences (not to mention intended)... and often creates more inefficiency by devoting time, energy and resources to that control rather than to the supposed purpose or goal. Doesn't matter if it's a little fish in a little pond or a big fish in a little pond or a whale in an ocean. Rot begets rot at any level.

Anytime


I'm open-minded about the whole issue actually. I do think any entire industry predicated on profit cannot possibly be entirely 100% trusted with blind faith (when it comes to our health).

OTOH, there are a lot of smarter people than myself with decades invested in medical training and higher learning. There's good reason to listen to what some of those folks have to say, too.

When a government owns patents and then guilts/mandates the mass consumption of that product, there's an issue there.


Insurance company lobbyists and lawyers would certainly have an opinion on it. If a vaccine starts to kill people, who are they going to sue? As well as being able to get premiums from the government to protect them from the lawsuits...

I think we're pretty much on the same page. I'm betting that the vast majority of folks in the medical industry are doing all the right things for all the right reasons and bless them one and all -- they're worth their weight in gold!

But it only takes one bad apple to spoil the whole bunch, and they can cause exponentially more damage if unchecked.

Such is life, eh?

Sometimes the problem isn't the what but the how -- and sometimes it's both!
