Here's a trend I want to see continue: Judge Invalidates Human Gene Patent. Not only does patenting genes make no sense (What, those corporations invented the genes they've patented? Nonsense.), but it also limits scientific research and throws up all kinds of ominous portents. If a corporation owns the rights to specific genes you carry in your body, do you trust them to behave innocently and for the public good? Um.

Bravo, United States District Court Judge Robert W. Sweet! More of the same, the rest of you judges.
