    Wow, so much stupidity crammed into one sentence. But considering the source it’s no surprise. How many Democrats do you know who are atheists? How many republicans do you know who are atheists?

    And the topic isn’t trademarks ®, it is patenting. And the decision was unanimous, meaning 5 so called CONservatives agreed with only 4 so called liberal justices. Inconvenient little fact there huh ima(nass)?

    From the US Patent Office website: “The United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO), the agency that issues patents in the United States, has developed guidelines on the patenting of genetic discoveries. The current guidelines state that identification of a gene’s sequence alone is not patentable, but that a gene isolated from its natural state may be patentable if the applicants can demonstrate ‘specific, substantial and credible utility’ for the discovery.”

    @Genome Project

    I would hope that no one starts flagging people that comment here simply because they are disagreeable.

    Patents,trademarks,copyrights. Whatever the proper nomenclature is purely semantics, no. Seems petty to have to point it out, no.
    The MEANING of the post was clear, (at least to me). Now if you feel differently about the remainder, so be it.

    Whatever you do, don’t buy a farm near Monsanto.

    This from someone who said, “lol, you fed the leftist trolls fersure. Sweet irony.” just 1 minute ago in Chip Bok’s cartoon.

    @Ms. Ima

    Looking at the “Human Genome” should be proof in itself that the “Christian” version of God is very wrong.

    Proving when libs can’t lie away the truth they lie about anyone who speaks it, and it seems this bunch can’t manage any more intelligent personal attacks than kindergarten namecalling.

    And even if it’s “right”, he must’ve given up on us a long time ago.

    I’m sorry you have such disdain for the English language or are too lazy to learn the difference between two dissimilar things. Patents, trademarks and copyrights ARE different so the difference is not simply semantics.
    According to Wikipedia:
    ”A patent (/ˈpætənt/ or /ˈpeɪtənt/) is a set of exclusive rights granted by a sovereign state to an inventor or their assignee for a limited period of time, in exchange for the public disclosure of the invention. An invention is a solution to a specific technological problem, and may be a product or a process”
    ”A trademark, trade mark, or trade-mark is a recognizable sign, design or expression which identifies products or services of a particular source from those of others”
    A “Copyright is a legal concept, enacted by most governments, giving the creator of an original work exclusive rights to it, usually for a limited time. Generally, it is “the right to copy”

    And Dictionary.com claims:
    A patent is “the exclusive right granted by a government to an inventor to manufacture, use, or sell an invention for a certain number of years.”
    A trademark, trade mark, or trade-mark “any name, symbol, figure, letter, word, or mark adopted and used by a manufacturer or merchant in order to designate his or her goods and to distinguish them from those manufactured or sold by others.”
    A Copyright is “the exclusive right to make copies, license, and otherwise exploit a literary, musical, or artistic work,”

    All are a form of intellectual property but each is different from the other. There hopefull you learned something today. Your demonstrated intellectual laziness is what I think is a contributing factor to the poor state of society today.

    “Why do you care who writes what and who replies to whom?”
    So anyone can come on here and spew any lies they want, and that’s okay? fersure
