“The U.S. IPR (Intellectual Property Rights) orthodoxy is based on a fallacious idea that people do not innovate or generate knowledge unless they can derive private profits. However, greed is not a “fundamental fact of human nature” but a dominant tendency in societies that reward it. “( quoted from Vandana Shiva, Indian activist, environmentalist, seed saver, and founder of Navdanya.)
