A full-fledged post on freedom in various forms is coming. For the time-being I will leave you with some links (that I borrowed from a very kind friend of mine):
The idea for this post was trigerred from a mail that I had received (from this same kind friend) urging me to sign a petition asking drug giant Novartis to drop a patent case in the Indian courts.
I was wondering how Open Source Software companies make money considering that they give away their software for free. Is there a business model here that the drug industry can follow ?
Does freedom come at a cost ? or is it possible to get freedom with a better business model ?
It is a simple equation: Drug manufacturers need money and patients need affordable treatment.
Can we solve this equation ?
Like I said, we will discuss freedom in more detail in coming posts.
