How much of the debate we see about XMRV is really about intellectual property (money) and not about the existence of the virus? Is this a better way of interpreting the shennanegans we are seeing? With millions infected the money to be made is enormous. Is there a financial advantage in reinventing XMRV as something else and claiming patent rights? I have put this subject in this thread because I think money may be affecting the dabate about viral identity - sequences - could you patent a specific sequence? And would this affect your attitude to someone elses viral sequences? So much for "science" when money is involved.
