*Bringing Down the House on Intellectual Property and Access*

As the Trump administration makes noise about the high price of
pharmaceuticals while doubling down on its commitment to "protect the
engine of American ingenuity," this *issue of TAGline
dives deep into the rhetoric and realities of intellectual property  (IP)
protections  and  the current wave of political shenanigans on critical
drugs, surfacing the fundamental lies and vested interests that deny
medication to those in need in the United States and around the world.
