From what I've heard the patent office is issuing patents on genes.
Companies are getting patents on a particular part of the human
genome, which means that if a researcher decides to study a
disease, such as diabetes, he may have to pay royalties to the
company that owns that patent. It is stopping others from
researching in areas that have been issued a patent. A little
common sense is in order.

yeah I saw that episode of boston legal too.
