MYRIAD > US bio company has bloody well patented the breast cancer gene!!! The danger of patenting the breast cancer gene> To patent is to own. Someone now owns the breast cancer gene.
If anyone wants to study it in hope of understanding a cure they will now have to pay Myriad to do so. If that's not scary enough. To pass anything in court is known as allowing a precedent.
Then lawyers use this 'precedent' to argue other cases that are similar, it helps them... a lot! Now this has been passed, lawyers can use it for most everything biological. Races could be patented. Blonde hair could be patented. Genetic codes could be patented; we may have to pay to have a cancer free genetic code!
This is not where money and ownership belong. Really... I mean come on guys!
