Cant Patent Humans in U.S.
Congress has agreed on language providing legislative backing to the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office policy of not issueing patents on human life. According to reports:
The provision would ban patents for genetically engineered human embryos, fetuses and human beings, but would not affect patents on genes, cells, tissue and other biological products.
Congressman Weldon (R-FL) was the leading proponent of the measure in the House and should be commended for his efforts.
