  • News & Commentary - Message forums Groups urge court to uphold ruling that patents on genes are illegal
    Submitted by Gary Van Domselaar; posted on Wednesday, April 06, 2011


    A press release from the ACLU:

    "The American Civil Liberties Union, Public Patent Foundation (PUBPAT) and U.S. Solicitor General Neal Katyal were in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit in Washington, D.C. today urging the court to uphold a lower court ruling that patents on two human genes are illegal.

    "'The human gene is a product of nature and no more patentable than a human kidney,' said Chris Hansen, staff attorney with the ACLU Speech, Privacy and Technology Project who argued on behalf of the plaintiffs today. 'The district court ruling striking down patents on human genes was a victory for the free flow of ideas and information, and could lead to important medical and scientific advances. The appeals court should uphold that ruling.'"
