“The Court of Appeals’ refusal to allow Consumer Watchdog to appeal the (Patent and Trademark Office’s) faulty decision to uphold a patent on human embryonic stem cells is a clear violation of the express language of statutes passed by Congress and signed by the President to empower the public to seek revocation of invalid patents.”
“The patent should clearly be rejected because it covers ineligible subject matter and was obvious in view of earlier research.”
“This is an important battle. Human embryonic stem cells hold great promise for advancing human health, and no one has the ethical right to own them,”
"Well, the people, I would say. There is no patent. Could you patent the sun?"
"If there were any patentable novelty to be found in this phase, it would lie within an extremely narrow scope and would be of doubtful value."
