Quote:The Supreme Court ruled Thursday that human genes cannot be patented, a decision with both immediate benefits for some breast and ovarian cancer patients and long-lasting repercussions for biotechnology research.

The decision represents a victory for cancer patients, researchers and geneticists who claimed that a single company's patent raised costs, restricted research and sometimes forced women to have breasts or ovaries removed without sufficient facts or second opinions.

But the court held out a lifeline to Myriad Genetics, the company with an exclusive patent on the isolated form of genes that can foretell an increased genetic risk of cancer. The justices said it can patent a type of DNA that goes beyond extracting the genes from the body.

Justice Clarence Thomas wrote the decision for a unanimous court. "Myriad did not create anything," Thomas said. "To be sure, it found an important and useful gene, but separating that gene from its surrounding genetic material is not an act of invention."

A victory for our genetics as it was given to us by the creator. Even Monsanto can't stop us from evolving into Roundup ready humans. chuckle.gif

Yes, that's a known fact, at least to people who care to learn about things. cheers.gif Butter rules!

Good news folks! I guess Monsanto doesn't have everyone in its pockets just yet. yay.gif

Obama is a douchebag and couldn't find his ass in a wrestling match with 57 monkeys and a lollypop.

Obama hasn't done ONE thing to help America. Not ONE thing! He is racist, smug, traitorous, a liar and an all around POS.

The only things Obama has done in the US is continue Bush's policies, extend the war, take away MORE freedoms, cram laws down our throat and then make himself and his staff exempt from having to follow the same laws, etc.

He's an embarrassment to the USA and the world.

If they ever build a statute of this idiot, I hope they build it in central park where the pigeons can take a dump on it on a daily basis.

That's the BEST that he deserves.

Cloning, gene slice and splice and they will engineer new human life. If they can't patent life, they'll lease it on a contract. Use some form of legalese to get around it. Remember when NDAA, CISPA wasn't going to pass.

In order to lease something there needs to be a contract of mutual consent. If you are cloned, you weren't asked to be cloned. They just did it. Therefore. Not a legally binding contract.

Okay, What I should have added, is if someone wanted to give their DNA to some big pharma,DARPA research product for money. Where they then could mix DNA and say this is a new unique "person". But I believe this kind of research has been happening for years and we will have synthetic lifeforms at some point. The research about the singularity event, which has been projected to occur in 2025-30 will be another major turning point in history, when this event occurs. Not a matter of if.

Also if they did clone you and mixed your dna with someone else, how would you know they had stolen your genetic make up. We can not stop these processes from happening, but we need to control what they do with it. Check out more info here http://localorg.blogspot.co.uk/2013/05/t...gical.html

If they cloned someone, who would pay the child support?
