In 2013, the US government granted its approval for Sovaldi, a blockbuster new drug that could cure hepatitis C. Manufactured by the multi-billion-dollar pharmaceutical company Gilead, the pill was more effective against the disease than anything that had come before, and had the potential to revolutionise treatment for millions of patients across the world. But Gilead launched Sovaldi in the US, and some other countries, at the eye-popping price of $1,000 per pill. For an alternative to Sovaldi, many patients looked to India, which had, for some decades, been a reliable supplier of affordable versions of expensive medication. But in fulfilling this role, India had acquired a reputation for flouting the patents of Western pharmaceutical companies. In recent years, the Indian government has been in the midst of complex negotiations about the state of its intellectual property rights regime, and has come under relentless pressure from the US to rein in its pharmaceutical industry.

It was under intense scrutiny from the US government and corporations that, in January 2015, Gilead's application for a patent for Sovaldi came up before the Delhi patent office. At stake in the judgment were billions of dollars, and the fates of tens millions of lives of patients around the world.
