As far as it seems feasible and rightful, DNA is the property of individuals, no medicine or medical procedure or device should be allowed to have a patent that deprives humans rights to the services and knowledge that is a collective project. When tax dollars are used to fund these projects and patents then they are the property of the tax payer suject to free distribution and entitlments for all.

These organizations can be granted copy rights which allows the use of their discoveries by other organizations giving credit by intellectual awards. By making all medical and health related discoveries non patentable it could break the spine of Monsanto's grip of genetic secret DNA manipulation and distribution. The government and Mexicans seems to think health care is a right and if that is so, so is all the R&D and medical discoveries by any private or public corporation, college, or business.

But no company or business should be allowed to profiteer and blackmail Americans to deprive medical care from the true owners, the people and the DNA that is confiscated without consent to research with. Americans are funding all these R & D departments through profiteered funding.
