I get it but still....
I've referenced this in other articles that I understand the importance of making money. But can an event such as a pandemic qualify as grave enough that we instead focus on the sharing of information to get a solution quicker, safer, and more widespread? Why even have a cause to hack IP for COVID 19 Research?

It just shows where our priorities are as a society and its somewhat sickening.
