Cognition-Enhancing Drugs: Can We Say No?, Frank Pasquale 2010 University of Maryland Francis King Carey School of Law

Cognition-Enhancing Drugs: Can We Say No?, Frank Pasquale

Faculty Scholarship

Normative analysis of cognition-enhancing drugs frequently weighs the liberty interests of drug users against egalitarian commitments to a "level playing field." Yet those who would refuse to engage in neuroenhancement may well find their liberty to do so limited in a society where such drugs are widespread. To the extent that unvarnished emotional responses are world-disclosive, neurocosmetic practices also threaten to provide a form of faulty data to their users. This essay examines underappreciated liberty-based and epistemic rationales for regulating cognition-enhancing drugs.


Access To Medicine In An Era Of Fractal Inequality, Frank Pasquale 2010 University of Maryland Francis King Carey School of Law

Access To Medicine In An Era Of Fractal Inequality, Frank Pasquale

Faculty Scholarship

Those in the richest countries have far more income and wealth than those in poor countries. Moreover, the most fortunate in the richest countries – particularly those in the top centile of the income distribution – are far richer than those around them. Most dramatically, even within that top centile, the richest of the rich have far more resources than even their elite peers. Like fractals, the patterns of distribution repeat at various levels.

This pattern of fractal inequality ensures that spending that seems trivial to those at the top of an income distribution can overwhelm the purchasing power of those in ...

Pharmaceutical Patent Litigation Settlements: Implications For Competition And Innovation, John R. Thomas 2010 Georgetown University Law Center

Pharmaceutical Patent Litigation Settlements: Implications For Competition And Innovation, John R. Thomas

Georgetown Law Faculty Publications and Other Works

Although brand-name pharmaceutical companies routinely procure patents on their innovative medications, such rights are not self-enforcing. Brand-name firms that wish to enforce their patents against generic competitors must commence litigation in the federal courts. Such litigation ordinarily terminates in either a judgment of infringement, which typically blocks generic competition until such time as the patent expires, or a judgment that the patent is invalid or not infringed, which typically opens the market to generic entry.

As with other sorts of commercial litigation, however, the parties to pharmaceutical patent litigation may choose to settle their case. Certain of these settlements have ...


Health Care Reform In Transition: Incremental Insurance Reform Without An Individual Mandate, Lawrence O. Gostin, Elenora E. Connors 2010 Georgetown University Law Center

Health Care Reform In Transition: Incremental Insurance Reform Without An Individual Mandate, Lawrence O. Gostin, Elenora E. Connors

Georgetown Law Faculty Publications and Other Works

A major access problem exists in the private insurance market for individuals with preexisting conditions, who are either denied coverage or charged exorbitant premiums. In effect, individuals are denied coverage for exactly what they need, which jeopardizes their health and the financial security of their family. Before health reform passed, discussions surrounding incremental reform took place, including perhaps the most politically compelling – prohibiting insurers from denying coverage to those with preexisting health conditions. Insurance is based upon the principles of spreading risk of individuals across a population to ensure that everyone can afford medical care when he or she needs ...

On March 23, 2010, President Obama signed into law the first U.S. comprehensive health care reform bill, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA). After almost a century of failed attempts, the U.S. now has a national health care system which promises to increase access to care, increase consumer choice, and ban insurance discrimination for individuals with preexisting medical conditions. The PPACA is expected to expand insurance coverage to 32 million individuals by 2019 through a variety of measures. At a cost of $938 billion over 10 years, the PPACA is projected to reduce the deficit by ...

Redressing The Unconscionable Health Gap: A Global Plan For Justice, Lawrence O. Gostin

Georgetown Law Faculty Publications and Other Works

Consider two children—one born in sub-Saharan Africa and the other in the United States. The African child is twenty-five times more likely to die in the first five years of life; if she lives to child-bearing age, she is a two hundred times more likely to die in labor; and overall, she will die thirty years earlier than the American child. The international community is deeply resistant to taking bold remedial action—more concerned with their geostrategic interests than the health of the poor. The scale of foreign aid is both insufficient and unsustainable and fails to address the ...
