Creative implications…

US Supreme Court ruled that genes cannot be patented.

Which means I cannot patent my own genes. So… if a few other precedents were set, and I don’t imagine it would take many, could that mean that I would have no claim to my own identity, that any number of me could be created and claim my identity, and I would be able to do nothing about it?

Note, this is not meant to discourage genetic research, which I very much support. I’m not even against cloning, though there definitely needs to be some ethics applied to it.

From a creative standpoint, what do you think it would take to reach the bottom of my slope, and do you think it would change the meaning of the term Identity Thief?
