Actually, I'm a PHYSICIAN, not an IP Lawyer. Semi-retired, work at a free / income-based clinic a couple of days a week and don't get paid. I pay my own malpractice insurance, license fees, and other expenses in order to do so. If it were to get too expensive or require too much red tape, I would have to stop helping those patients.
I'm glad that for-profit drug companies have given me tools to improve and save lives. If they were to stop doing so, people would suffer.
Pro Tip: don't pick my motives based on your preconceived notions.
