Gene Patents: Told You So!

Just this minute, I was reached by the terrific news that the US supreme court has finally ruled against patenting of human genes: here here, here, here, here, here. The ruling itself can be downloaded here.

With respect to my interest in this matter from the point of view of promoting science, health and the interests of patients and the general public, expressed in former posts here and here, this is mainly to rub it in: told you so!!!

  1. A great decision by the US government. We don't need experiments anymore. We need sorting out the data we already have. Sorry to disagree, but I really appreciate the ruling even though I didn't expect it!
