Episode discussion for: 01x10 | Endless Forms Most Beautiful (Jun 01, 2013)

I'm curious how the following article will affect Season 2.

Court says human genes cannot be patented

Quote:
The Supreme Court ruled Thursday that companies cannot patent parts of naturally-occurring human genes, a decision with the potential to profoundly affect the emerging and lucrative medical and biotechnology industries.


Now does the ability to patent those parts of the human genome that are not naturally-occurring entitle them to ownership of the entire genome when the preponderance of the genome is naturally-occurring?

I would think not.

Someone from the AMC site for Breaking Bad suggested this show as a good replacement since BrBa is now finished. It seems very interesting so far, I've watched 4 episode from OnDemand.

Finished all 10 episodes and it's a great show. Guess it'll be my repacement for Brba next year.

Tatiana Maslany is a wonderful actor, so much range and talent. Maslany does a wonderful job playing so many varied parts.

@ BESommer: Good question. I'm sure the show will work something out. But have businessmen ever obeyed the law?
