Before reading this book, I was vaguely aware of the issues. Now, I am completely caught up and in 100% agreement that Congress must act to restore the original intention of the copywrite and trademark provisions of the US Constitution, to stimulate and not stifle creativity.
The notion that a company can patent a gene it discovered, as if it created it, is absurd. What is even more absurd is, in order to use that gene for further scientific research, the researcher must pay the company a royalty. What happens when if such a patent actually blocks the discovery of new therapies for cancer, diabetes, and heart disease? It's unacceptable.
The second chapter is a tough slog to get through, with far too much redundant talk about how hip-hop and rap thrived off of sampling. But don't let that bog you down. Push through and you will find a great book awaiting you.
Ironically, Kembrew's publisher says that all rights for the book are reserved and that nobody can reproduce or republish any portions without first getting permission. No fair use without permission? That's a bit hypocritical, don't you think, Kembrew?
