DNA patents

To the Intellectual Property Institute's talk on DNA Patents, given by Sandy Thomas. The venue is the auditorium in British American Tobacco's office, where not only are there ashtrays on every table but half-consumed packets of cigarettes too (and the ashtrays are half full - are they maintained that way?). The chairman, Lord Justice Jacob, jokes that he might take an ashtray as a souvenir, as they will have no purpose in an office building after 1 July.
