What ******* asshole tried patenting human genes?
User avatar #61 to #30 - undeadwill (06/17/2013) [-]
Problem with patenting human genes is that the copy rights last forever (thanks Disney) and that if you patent human genes you can own people a direct violation of the 13th amendment of the US Constitution.
#67 to #30 - vkd (06/17/2013) [-]
Imagine if you Find a way to remove cancer genes, that person who managed to patent those genes would be the richest ************ in the world.


It's ALL about the money which is pretty sad..... some people are so addicted to money they try to patent human genes.
User avatar #165 to #67 - toosexyforyou (06/17/2013) [-]
Surely you can see the other person's side. I'll be more specific:

Imagine if you find a way to remove cancer genes, you are not able to patent this. Someone else with more money than you takes all your work and is able to advertise it so much better than you that it basically ends up with him taking all the credit and making more money than you.

We definitely shouldn't patent genes but the credit and money should definitely go to the person who worked on it. I don't understand how you can think the way you do. How is it sad that it's all about the money? You don't work hard at something for nothing. The world doesn't owe you anything, if you want something then you have to work to pay for it. If it's not money, then it's another reason and honestly, we're lucky that it's about money and not world domination.
#181 to #165 - vkd (06/18/2013) [-]
there is a good difference between money for something you do and earning millions of dollars which serve no purpose as one can not use it all up before you have earned the same amount of money again.

and If someone with more money than you takes all the credit they also usually have the money to invest and advance the method further.



and you can't understand the way i think ? we are going as far as finding ways to "own" others body just to make as much money as possible, that is the problem... our drive for something which does not have any value in the end is crazy and we even go as far as trying to prohibit medicine to the people because people want waay to much money.

Someone who didn't want to get himself cloned, maybe
No where it said the someone wanted to patent all of them.
Maybe he ment his own.
#170 to #30 - Rascal (06/17/2013) [-]
It would have been horrible had they succeeded. We would have to pay them every time we use a diagnostic test for BRCA genes (the ones they tried to patent, breast cancer genes, Angelina Jolie has a mutation in one of them). It's important that there is competition in industry so these tests get cheaper.

idk but i wish that asshole would die. if human genes were patented, science would not
be for the advancement of humankind anymore. it'd be just another ****** capitalistic business
#73 to #70 - Rascal (06/17/2013) [-]
most of it is already a ****** capitalistic business?

Myriad Genetics was the one that was being the biggest bitch about it. They tried to patent cancer testing genes
#75 to #64 - visdman (06/17/2013) [-]
They managed to get the right to patent artificial genes though.

I really hope the people who tried to patent genes would die in a slow painful death that involved some sort of cancer.
#156 to #13 - Rascal (06/17/2013) [-]
You could before at least >_>

User avatar #82 to #13 - wishingwell (06/17/2013) [-]
yeah but it's not only human DNA, it's all DNA, which could lead to some prolems for the biotech sector, like people trying to increase the energy output for spores and such, in bio-fuel.

and it will be so much harder to patent cros-species [NO FURRIES] technology, if one wanted, lets say, to cross human and insect genomes, thus making it harder for us to have exoskelletons, mind/phermone control over insects and lesser species, world-global empathy for humanoids and basicly making the human race OP

**sketchysketchist rolled a random image posted in comment #140 at This guy **

All we need now, is the supreme court to say that you can't patent any genes whatsoever so science can develop cures for cancer and more genetic diseases.
#5 to #4 - trickytrickster (06/17/2013) [-]
If you create a brand new gene that doesn't naturally occur in humans you deserve to patent it. Naturally occurring genes that you isolated is stupid though, and I agree with the supreme court.

However, non naturally occurring genes wouldn't really have anything to do with cures for that stuff.
User avatar #6 to #5 - sketchysketchist (06/17/2013) [-]
Actually, they've made mice specifically to test cancer cures on.
And people have patented them and made it so the usage of these mice or making your own cost money.
#7 to #6 - trickytrickster (06/17/2013) [-]
Oh, that is what you were getting at. Ya, knockout mice etc. It's tough because these scientists do a lot of research etc to come up with these techniques and stuff, and it's not really fair to refuse them compensation for their efforts.
User avatar #9 to #7 - sketchysketchist (06/17/2013) [-]
True.
Though I think it has it's downsides seeing how everyone wants their hands on it to use it to find the cure and take credit for it, and they'd rather make more money than make it so someone can make the world better.
But I guess it's right that they do get compensated for their part.
#15 to #9 - selfrazedzealot ONLINE (06/17/2013) [-]
There should be a section that says you can't hinder the improvement of mankind for money. they should patent it but companies should be able to use it in private and release it publically when they better the thing without paying the previous person
User avatar #86 to #4 - wishingwell (06/17/2013) [-]
actually the ruling cover all DNA - that's all living organisms on earth.

- so they have to change parts of it imho, if we still want to make biofuel more efficient, or release spores to reduce the CO2 level in the atmosphere etc
User avatar #8 to #4 - sodrant (06/17/2013) [-]
Actually, pharmaceutical companies usually don't make money off of their drugs unless they are patented.

If they decided to make patenting all genes illegal (synthetic or not) we would have cures, but no one would make them.
User avatar #10 to #8 - sketchysketchist (06/17/2013) [-]
I think it should be like any business.
You charge for the cost making the product and extra for the profit.
Other than that, you shouldn't have complete ownership of a specific thing.
But I'm wrong seeing that Coca cola has kept it's recipe secret for decades and it'd be wrong if we demanded they share it with the rest of the world because.
#11 to #10 - trickytrickster (06/17/2013) [-]
If you develop a drug, it usually costs billions to bring to market after all the tests, etc. A lot of drugs fail, and the companies take a huge hit on that too. If patents didn't exist, drugs would cost a **** ton.

The generic versions are much cheaper because PRODUCING the medicin is not very exspensive, compared to ******* INVENT it.

Thats what pharmaceutical companies does. They acutally INVENT medicin, and you have NO idea how much **** it has to go through before it can be released to the public (with good reason).
#113 to #12 - trickytrickster (06/17/2013) [-]
Dude...none of this is true haha. It takes 10+ years for a drug to get approved by the FDA. Patents only last for 20 years, so by the time the drug is on the market, they only have 10 years to cover the cost of the drug and to make a profit. After the patent is over, a generic version of the drug gets made. Read this.

Scientist are becoming gods.
There's a new master of creation, and it's them!
They've unraveled DNA,
And at the same time they're cultivating bacteria strong enough to kill every living thing.
You think they're ready for that much power?
You Lot,
You Lot!
Cheeky bastards.
They're running around science like kids with guns, creating a new world, while the world you've got is stinking.
