Another moral hypothetical

Moral hypothetical: Suppose that you have spent all of your adult life working to create a pill to cure a major disease (e.g. Aids). After sacrificing everything (time, family, money) you succeed and develop a successful pill. You start a company and market the pill. Then, a non-profit organization analyzes your pill and begins to manufacture a much cheaper version of it and distribute it to third world nations without your permission. This causes you a significant loss of profit, forcing you to lay off half of your company's employees.

Assume that you can stop the non-profit company by going to court and getting an injunction that will force them to cease what they're doing.
