Russell McOrmondThe United States did not honour foreign copyright while they were a developing nation. I do not see how having different levels of intellectual monopoly policy in different countries can ever be seen as a form of "foreign aid". Those taking risks based on the presumption of intellectual monopolies should not be presuming a global monopoly. In fact, they shouln't be presuming any specific monopoly in any country, given we may eventually move away from the presumption based to an evidence based policy setting to determine the right level of intellectual monopolies.
