Jonas Salk chase not to patent his 1955 polio
vaccine, making it more affordable for the
milling of people who needed it.
As a result, he missed out on earning an
estimated billion.
Thank you, Dr Salk (1914 -1995).

"His sole focus had been to develop a safe and effective vaccine as rapidly as possible, with no interest in personal profit. When he was asked in a televised interview who owned the patent to the vaccine, Salk replied: "There is no patent. Could you patent the sun?""

>implying he couldn't have patented it, and sold it at the same cheap price
competitors would still have to compete with his product's pricing, keeping the price reasonably low
