"because of music and software piracy for years." Last I've checked, we're still not off of it. We're "improved", in a class one higher than the worst, but we're not off of it. There's much work to be done. As for Teva, considering that US pharma companies had patent laws changed specifically to help them, I'm not that averse to Israeli laws being different in order to allow real competition. It's the difference between Israel ignoring regular concepts of any IP for music and s/w, while having different laws for pharma than US pharma would like. The later's worse than the former.
