Drug Piracy: A Wave of Counterfeit Medicines Washes Over Russia

Date: September 5, 2006
Author: ANDREW E. KRAMER
QUOTE: the biggest problem presented by the fake drugs is violation of intellectual property rights, cutting into the profits of pharmaceutical companies. There do not appear to have been major injuries from the drugs, many of which are similar in makeup to the drugs they mimic...Counterfeiters operate illegally for profit, and the contents of the fake drugs can be different from the originals.
