IV Team Fights Malaria

IV’s PR campaign continues as its website reports that:

“Malaria is both preventable and curable, yet almost one million people, mostly children, die from it each year.  Our team of entomologists, epidemiologists, physicists, and other scientists are working on innovative new ways to help reduce and eradicate malaria.  One area of interest is to develop a faster and more accurate way to diagnose malaria through the detection of the malaria parasite’s waste product- hemozoin.”

Query: is it beneficial to society to have a massive patent troll extracting money from businesses in order to engage in socially beneficial programs?
