    In renewing the patents, is it the financial value of patenting process of each particular drugs varies or said to be much more higher from each another based on their sales data? like what if they are top selling drugs in the market that probably make more money when compare with others? and how about those drugs with multiple patents?

    well, now some kind of generics/or copied products now have the ability to be manufactured and produced by other company based on the procedure and information regarding the drugs. hence, products can go on sell and have a market to capture.
