> I often think way too much is made of the brand vs generic issue

It only takes one bad drug to become an issue if you are the one taking it.

> before generics are released they have to show bioequivelence

No. In the US, there is a 20% range of difference which a generic drug is allowed to deviate from the original product with respect to absorption. There is nothing "equivalent" about a 20% difference.

> that is, not only contain the same amount of drug as the original, but show serum levers etc that are virtualy the same.

For some drugs and for some people "virtually" is not good enough.

I don't know why this is a big issue either.
