Open Sourced Biology? What is the future of our information.
In a world that is in constant flux, the internet age has inspired a new wave of copyright infringement, trademark/ patent disputes and debate over ownership of information.

But in today's political climate, I wonder about the consequences of over-extending our ownership over information, both digital and biological.
