Professor Gary Hull, director of the Program on Values and Ethics in the Marketplace of Duke University, will present a moral defense of the pharmaceutical industry's unconditional right to patents. Hull argues that this right is being violated by price caps, state-imposed limits on pharmaceutical advertising, and educational programs, compulsory licensing, special favors for generics, and limits on ancillary patents.
