US Blocks Cheap Drugs Deal

Dick Cheney just helped assure the mass death of disease sufferers throughout the developing world. Despite threats that failure to ease murderous intellectual property rules would derail the global trade round, the White House took its orders from the pharmaceutical industry and killed an (already weak) discount drug deal that almost all other countries were ready to agree upon.

See the letter from US NGOs condemning the US negotiating position.

See the Consumer Project on Technology web page on the issue.
