Re: [Rant] Everyone jump on the Pink bandwagon...

Another roadblock in looking for cures is the fact that it is legal to patent genes. This means if you find a common link in the human genome for cancers, And a big pharmacorp owns the patent to that gene they can sue you even for attempting research. Yes corporations can own genetic code... And do not care if people die because their patents might hold back general research.

I can see the patent trolls next master plan....

Step 1. Find gene that's common to every human.
Step 2. Patent that gene
Step 3. Sue every human on earth for $1.
Step 4. PROFIT!!
