While Adli Law Group, P.C. is revered for their impeccable skill and legal insights in the world of business, there are still many who are unaware of how thoroughly patent law affects our lives. This year, though, one case serves as the perfect example of just how important patent law can be. In June, The Supreme Court ruled unanimously that companies cannot patent human genes – a decision that many believe will lead to increased competition and lower cancer screenings and other genetic tests.
The DNA patenting case centered on a Salt Lake City company called Myriad Genetics, which was granted patents for isolating two human genes – known as BRCA1 and BRCA2 – that indicate a higher risk of breast and ovarian cancer. The company also markets tests for those genes. "Myriad did not create anything," Justice Clarence Thomas stated according to NBC News. "To be sure, it found an important and useful gene, but separating that gene from its surrounding genetic material is not an act of invention."
Biological and genetic patenting has already played a major role in both science and business in the U.S. – the government has already granted patents on 4,000 human genes, mostly to companies and universities. Thus, it should serve as a great relief to have legal and engineering expert Dr. Adli at hand to assist professionals at every level who are affected by patent, trademark and IP acquisition.
