I questioned someone at the SGGEE conference last August about whether it is a good idea to submit to DNA testing for genealogical reasons because there are patent issues (among other issues such as insurance issues) to which this person said, and I quote "we don't have DNA patent issues in the United States.  If there are patent issues they are a Canadian problem".  Well, here is an article from the CBC that jumps right into the problem because it is a problem and the problem is global. Might someone with legal, medical or experience in this area please comment?


Thank you
