WTO mulls intellectual property waivers for vaccines

Ambassadors from the WTO countries are set to discuss trade rules protecting the technological know-how behind Covid-19 vaccines. The argument centers on lifting patents, copyrights, and protection of industrial design and confidential information to help expand the production of vaccines during shortages. Opponents say a waiver would be no panacea, stressing production of vaccines is complex.

I am sure the research and start up was paid for with tax money so it should be shared will all. But some folks are greedy.
