    Scientific American: Legal Circumvention (of gene patents)
    Submitted by Joe Landman; posted on Thursday, June 20, 2002

    In this article[1] in Scientific American[2], a process is described whereby gene or protein patents may be circumvented. This article raises some good questions about gene and protein patents. One might be inclined to consider whether or not genes and proteins can be patented, as they are indeed found in nature. Of course an obvious counter-argument to this is that they have been patented, so they are patentable (the tautological argument). This article is food for thought and hopefully a thoughtful debate.
