The Drug Price Competition and Patent Term Restoration Act, more commonly known as the Hatch-Waxman Act, together with the patent laws, attempt to advance the competing goals of preserving pharmaceutical companies' incentives to make the staggering investments necessary to bring new, improved drugs to market, as well as fostering lower prices through competition from generic versions of branded drugs. Developing and bringing to market new, better drugs requires enormous investments in research and development. To protect the branded-drug manufacturers' incentives to make those investments, the Hatch-Waxman Act established an extension of the term for patents relating to drugs that were subject to lengthy regulatory delays and could not be marketed prior to regulatory approval, even though the term of the patent covering the drugs was running. Pharmaceutical companies depend on the higher prices they can often charge while their drugs are under the exclusivity protection of a patent—or other statutorily granted exclusivity, such as for orphan drugs—to recoup their investments in bringing the branded drug to market.
