Mr. Bass seeks to raise awareness for the high prices consumers pay for medicines in the United States and how drug companies abuse the patent system to maintain anticompetitive, high-price monopolies. In 2015, Mr. Bass filed two patent challenges on a not-for-profit basis. Through these efforts, Mr. Bass seeks to eliminate improperly granted pharmaceutical patents to promote competition and innovation, which ultimately benefits consumers, taxpayers and American suffering from illness.
