    As long as peoples health (or lack thereof) remains a for profit industry, this is the sh*t we will get.

    FYI the US Supreme Court said FU, can't patent that:

    Since corporations are people according to the supreme court and you can't patent human genes does this mean corporate patents are invalid?

    I care because people living in Australia still belong to my species and I'd like for my species to not make idiotic decisions. Or, as few as possible and we seem to be doing a bang-up job of making some pretty terrible ones currently.

    syadasti, that's an interesting point. I think they'd counter that though considered human, they lack genes and their patents aren't on DNA so they stand. It'd be an interesting case to see hashed out for sure.
