“Today the Court has confirmed once and for all that all genes are part of the natural world and cannot be patented,” said Andrew Kimbrell, executive director of Center for Food Safety. “This groundbreaking decision is a victory for all of us that have long argued that nature and humanity should not and cannot be owned and controlled by corporations.”
“The decision is an important step in restoring balance to medical and scientific research, to move beyond flawed gene theory, and protecting people and nature from patent-created exploitation,” added Kimbrell.
CFS represented the following groups in their Supreme Court brief:
International Center for Technology Assessment
Council for Responsible Genetics
Indigenous People’s Council on Bio-colonialism
Friends of the Earth
Center for Environmental Health
