17. many countries, like Canada, have a time limit on new drugs to sell the original

So they can reap their R&D investments back, and then some. It may be 5 years, I'm not sure.

Then generic knock offs are allowed to compete. And they are about half as much.

The problem with the US is that there is no stopping them. They can continue to charge maximum pricing, with no generic competition, so they can continue making obscene profits on drugs that now cost them pennies to make.
