Nothing Under The Sun That Is Made Of Man

As part of the SCOTUSblog symposium on the AMP v. Myriad case currently before the United States Supreme Court, my short symposium article, "Nothing Under The Sun That Is Made Of Man," was published on February 7, 2013.  To summarize, I argue that the Supremes will answer "No" to their question, "Should human genes be patentable?," and will be motivated by a longterm trend prohibiting the patenting of human beings.  I plan to publish a full article about this issue soon after the Supremes decide the case this term.
