Image of the Day: Private Sector Pharmaceutical Investment Propels Innovation

As we've highlighted, the dangerous effort to weaken critical patent protections for U.S. pharmaceutical innovators often minimizes the role of private investment and exaggerates the role of public funding.  This offers a critical corrective at a moment when American drug and vaccine innovation is more important than ever:

Man Sues After Losing Facebook Friends Print
Tuesday, February 01 2011

A New York man is suing Facebook for $500,000 for inexplicably knocking him off the social network without warning. Mustafa Fteja filed his suit in Manhattan Supreme Court, stating that he has been using Facebook for about three years, mainly to keep in touch with family and friends in Montenegro, Albania, Germany and Austria.  Fteja claims he had 340 friends and spent countless hours uploading photos and stories to his page before it all disappeared.
 
"That was how I stayed in touch with people," said Fteja. He said he has pressed the company for months to find out what happened, but to no avail, leaving him with no choice but to file the lawsuit.
 
News reports indicate that Fteja received a form e-mail telling him he had violated the terms of the Facebook agreement.  The Web site typically cuts off users if they've posted objectionable content, or are suspected of spamming.

Fteja’s suit notes that he is Muslim, and charges Facebook with religious discrimination. "You don't treat people like that," he said. "They make a lot of money from the people. Why treat your customers like that?"
 
In addition to monetary damages, Fteja seeks restoration of his account.
