Rat Celebrates

Oh My God! The Courts Are Getting It Right!

Myriad patented a breast cancer gene.  Basically, no research could be done without their say-so and/or pay-off.

A group of concerned scientists challenged, saying the patent was unConstitutional.  I mean, it's genetics.  You can't patent a living thing.  What's more, it would stifle research, so the patent should be tossed for the Common Good.

The judge handed down his ruling.  In doing so, he made nearly ALL genetic patents invalid.

Whooooooooaaa, I saaaaaaaw the liiiiiiiiiiiiight....
