USA Today: Supreme Court skeptical of patent on breast cancer gene
Submitted by J.W. Bizzaro; posted on Monday, April 15, 2013
Submitter An article by Richard Wolf:

EXCERPT:
"The Supreme Court expressed grave doubts Monday about the legality of a company's exclusive patent on the genes that can identify an increased risk of breast and ovarian cancer.

"Using analogies ranging from baseball bats to chocolate chip cookies, a majority of justices said Myriad Genetics' isolation of the breast cancer genes was largely a force of nature, not invention."
