Addressing international legal and ethical issues summary
The issues of resolving legal disputes in international transactions occurs frequently.

This would mean whom they sublicensed to could sell there product cheaper and CadMex would lose a huge profit. Many of the sources that use the drug ProPrez would save and go for the cheaper genric drug.

This would be a huge hit on the company and may result in a breach of contract and come down to a lawsuit.
I feel that since the product is developed in Candore, then local customs and laws should prevail over the customs and laws of the United states. I feel that we as Americans have our customs and laws and we do ask others to understand ours, so we should out of respect and consideration to the Candorean government. The contract
