"This concept of abandonment of property, and so there are a number of cases that revolve around this, like, you know, the famous and infamous case of John Moore, the leukemia patient, whose spleen was removed at UCLA, you know, therapeutically, right? This was with his permission. Right, it wasn't randomly removed. He actually was cured. Sure. So that's good news, but you know, but there was something like it was sort of a Henry and Alex story. There were some pretty important properties. Of his cells that UCLA then now I remember the case. You know, the core of the California Supreme Court held well, you know, he just started as like abandoned property. You did the stuff that gets taken out of you at the hospital. We consider that abandoned. You part with it. No longer yours. And so UCLA, they could do what they want with it. Now, you know, UCLA did lose that case. They breached fiduciary duties to the guy. And they did get penalized. But as far as the property interest, yeah, it's a really weird area. You do partner with that stuff. It's like when you go get your haircut, do you have to collect all the hair? Like, I don't know, it just gets it's like gattaca, right? There's definitely scenes and gattaca where that plays a huge role of, you know, he's taking a brush to his keyboard to make sure he's not leaving cells behind. I mean, you know, I feel like more and more we're just going towards a world of gattaca. But my last quick fire question, Devin, who's a listener and a previous guest on episode one 96, wants to know if you have one of your genes have been freed t-shirts after the case is her best Supreme Court. Do you own a shirt, George? I do not. I did not get shirts made up. But now that you mentioned someone did, I don't know who did. In the pictures. I'm like, is there a picture in the book? I feel like there might be. Because you have some wonderful pictures in the book, which I didn't mention. But yes, but thank you so much for coming on. I mean, this was such a treat to be able to these are, you know, I'm going to be honest for a second. These are like my favorite interviews. When I get to read a book and I so many highlights for people watching on YouTube. So many highlights and it's just like people and concepts and really great ways that you explain and phrase things.

"Yes, and I'll be the first to admit. The patent law, it could use some help in a lot of ways. This is buried in there and it's a problem. Why is that? The human genome has been sequenced, right? Starting in 2001, drafts of the human genome have been released on GenBank and just 2021. It was finally completed like the last genes were finally yeah, I think it was earlier this year because we had Eric green, who was featured in your book and stuff on the show and the other leaders of the project and everything. Yeah. That was a big deal. Yeah, and so, you know, clearly the wild type human genome can not be patented anymore, 'cause it's out in the public domain. But what could be patented if this law passed? Well, new variants, right? Variants that were unknown, the significance of which is just discovered. So COVID resistance, right? So maybe there's some genetic basis to COVID resistance. Who knows? I've never gotten COVID. Travel around. Lots of airports, lots of airplanes, lots of conferences. I mean, you know, knock on wood. I think boosted all that stuff. But it's not gotten it. Maybe there's some genetic feature to that. But if there is, and let's say you have that and it's in your genes, wouldn't you own that and not some, if I was your geneticist and I was taking a sample from you and figuring it out, I don't know, that still feels weird to me. That's right. And so from 2013, the answer is no, they couldn't pack that. But if this case is reversed, then if it's new and it is quote unquote discovered or invented by someone, then maybe more important are non human genomes, right? Pathogenic genomes. So the RNA sequence of SARS CoV-2, for example, it's short. It's 30 kilobases long, right?

"DNA today, which features track gene. Looking at, as we said, it's been ten years now. Do you think there's been any big negative consequences to the BioTech industry for having these gene patents or were all the worries, you know, not that we shouldn't have had them, but was any of the worries? Did that end up happening? In these last 9 and a half years? No, I don't think it caused problems. I mean, what you will hear is that it's certainly harder for a new genetic diagnostic testing company to raise venture capital funding and make a business, which I completely accept, of course, that's true because they can't monopolize the market for a single test like myriad and many other companies did with genetic tests. But that's okay. It doesn't matter that these companies are not forming because the tests are still being performed. Big laboratory testing companies LabCorp and so forth. They'll do these tests and in fact today you can just with your 23andMe $125 in hot tests that you mail away for, they'll test you for the principle BRCA mutations. So I'm not aware of any genetic diagnostic testing that's not being done as a result of this. It's just being done at a lower cost and without, you know, without a company springing up to capitalize on every single test or just being done by large testing companies. Yeah, no, it's a very good point. I don't see a lot of repercussions and a negative sense from that happening. To me, it's just common sense. There was a time that we patent genes to me that just crazy, you know? Because I'm seeing it from this perspective of like once everything already happened. You know, just coming from someone that knows so much about genetic law and you're so up to date on what's happening in the field, are there any current legislation cases that we should keep our eye out for?

"And so myriad got the patent it covers drugs as well as diagnostics. It licensed all of the drug related rights to Eli Lilly. Eli Lilly paid myriad like $3 million at the very beginning of its existence before they even found the gene to sort of pre reserve those rights. That's one of the reasons myriad won the race to sequence the gene because they had more sequencers, lily was helping them out with their own banks of sequencers in Indianapolis. And they were really able to surpass the sequencing brute force sequencing capability of all the other academic labs that were in this race. And it's because Myriad's patents were so broad that they claimed things that myriad itself would never use as a diagnostics company. So they were just really like CYA. Lawyers. And just like cover everything that you possibly can, it was just surprising that they ended up spending so much time in the case about that part because in terms of me being in the genetic world, I'm like, I don't care as much about that part because it doesn't affect genetic testing, but like you're saying, the money's in pharmaceuticals and certainly patents around pharmaceuticals are important in the sense of companies potentially wait so much money on research and development. So they need to recoup that cost in having patents and everything. So I think patents to me make very much sense, like you said at the beginning and that pharmaceutical concept, an area.

"2012 or so when he figured this out and he said, I'm going to write them because brief to the Supreme Court and tell them this. And he teams up with a professor from Harvard who runs their health law center and submits this brief for the Supreme Court. And I've really amazing thing happen, right? The justices really latched on to landers brief, especially justice Breyer. A lot of gossip about this, right? Lander and justice Breyer and justice Kagan, like they all live right on brattle street. They're all in the same room. I was going to say in the book you were like, their neighbors. And I'm like, is that a interest? Like, how does that work? It's crazy. You know, no, it's not a conflict of interest, even though people kind of raise their eyebrows, but everyone said nothing improper happened here. But out of all the amicus briefs that get filed, it's like it's extremely rare that the justices will ask about an amicus brief from the bench. The parties they literally, they only get 25 or 30 minutes to make their entire argument into spend and the briefs, like the parties briefs are 50, 75 pages long. To spend a lot of time on the amicus brief is really unusual. And prior really grilled the lawyer for myriad about this question about whether or not it was like back and forth and back and forth with all these analogies. The oral arguments are really something. And for those who don't know, you know, the first of all, if you're in Washington, D.C., going to an argument with Supreme Court. It's one of the best free shows in Washington, right? Every year entitled to say everyone can go listen to the Supreme Court, it's great. Some of the cases are more interesting than others. This one was a crazy argument. And the recordings are all available. If you ever have to freeze out now, oh my gosh. I was like, all I'm gonna get is just what you've written in the book, which is great, but I'm like, I want everything. I want like, you know, the receipts. So here are the tone of voice to hear how annoyed justice Breyer is getting in. The justices, okay, like none of them are scientists, right? They're struggling to understand what in the world this case is about. And so they come up with metaphors, right? You mentioned the analogy crazy metaphors like what is patenting a gene like is it like patenting a kidney? Is it like you saw a branch off a tree and you're trying to patent that? Or do you carve that branch into a baseball bat? And then you try to patent it or is it like a leaf from a tree or justice Alito came up with the craziest one of all. There's a branch from a tree. It falls into the ocean and like the motion of the waves and naturally carve it into a baseball bat. But you're not being creative in the moment. This was all in the case. Every single one that you mentioned.

"They convinced themselves that we're not trying to eliminate all patterns in the BioTech sector, right? There's still a lot of stuff that can be patented. It's just this very first stage is sort of research basis, the naturally occurring DNA sequence that shouldn't be patentable because you didn't invent it. You know, the way the patent office looked at this, they said, well, you know, you invented it because you took that gene out of the chromosome in a chromosome, whatever X has like a thousand, 1500 genes scattered along its length somewhere. You isolated one gene, and you removed it from the chromosome, and that isolated gene in theory doesn't exist in nature. It's something that only exists in laboratory. So you did invent it. You actually did invent something you invented an isolated gene. That, you know, as the lower court judge said, that's a lawyer's argument, you know, not a scientist's argument.

"So what were the main factors you think that went into that decision? Yeah, yeah, absolutely. So, you know, the ACLU changes policy by bringing litigation, right? And you're absolutely right to bring litigation you have to sue somebody. You're not going to Congress saying we should change this law that should affect everybody very general. You've got to pick a defendant. And there were thousands of gene patents. The patent that you mentioned that which covered the LQ X genes, it was, it was bad, right? This company went into bankruptcy, and so it wasn't performing testing for two years. And this is a long QT syndrome as a cardiac arrhythmia that's treatable with beta blockers, but which if you don't identify the mutations in pediatric patients, you're not going to give them beta blockers and children were dying and so many of the people involved in the case thought what more sympathetic case could you have than a case where children are dying. And that's true. It's extremely tragic. What happened with long QT, but Chris Hansen and some of the leadership at the ACLU decided, no, you know, this is a tragic story, but in order for this case to really succeed, we need to pick something that everyone has heard of that will get real public support for. And breast cancer just leaped off the page at them. Breast cancer is probably the disease in the United States. It has the most advocacy behind it the most fundraising, the most public awareness, I would bet that virtually everyone in the United States has been affected in some way by breast cancer either as a victim. Patient or knowing someone in your family or a close friend who has had it. And so it affects everyone, and it really resonates with the American public. And they tried to tap into that. And conveniently there was a company that had numerous patents on the BRCA genes that related to breast and ovarian cancer. And that's how they got their defendant. Yeah, and it made sense because as you're saying, one in 8 females will develop breast cancer in their life. And so I mean, statistically, you've been affected by breast cancer. And there's so much awareness around it, like you said, people in October. Oh, it's breast cancer awareness month. Everybody pulls their pink shirt out, specifically a war pink shirt for this. I had to choose a color. And I was like, wow, it's gotta be paying for this episode. So yeah, I can see where that part made sense. The part that doesn't make sense to me is that the patents were only going to be active for a few more years. So a lot like most of them were set to expire between 2015 and 2018.

"Ten of DNA today, which features track gene. I'm very excited to introduce our guest for this episode. George Contreras, who earned his law degree from Harvard and teaches intellectual property, science policy, antitrust law, and genetic law at the university of Utah. He authored this awesome book. If you guys are watching the video on YouTube, I'm holding it up. The genome defense in this riveting behind the scenes courtroom drama a brilliant legal team battles corporate greed and government overreach for the fundamental rights to control our genes. Thank you so much for joining me, George. This is really exciting because I've been reading your book for about a week and a half now. So I've just been reading your words and just very focused on them and now I'm actually talking to you. No, well, thanks. It's a pleasure to be here. Thanks so much for inviting me. Yeah, and there's just so many key genetic players that played a role in this story that is now almost ten years old. I mean, your book came out a year ago, so you just hit the anniversary, so congratulations on your first anniversary of the book being out. And we're going to hit ten years next June. In June 2023 of this court case, but you know, I'm kind of skipping ahead. So why don't I rewind a little bit? And obviously, we're talking about the court case where the supreme court heard should be able to be patented. That was really the core question that it came down to. But I want to rewind all the way back to why did the ACLU feel so strongly that gene patents should be banned. I mean, that's really, I think, where the beginning of the story is, what is your perspective on this? I mean, you interviewed a lot of people to be able to write this book. It was like nearly a hundred people. Yeah, absolutely.

"Here's a team that hasn't been there since 2001. They've had some close brushes, including last year, didn't make it. And I have an American League manager saying, well, they're in now because they got that guy. I mean, buster, Luis Castillo has been really good lately. He's a difference maker. He can turn a non contender, maybe into a contender and maybe a contender into a champion. I'm not saying the Mariners are better than the Astros, the Yankees, but that's another element, but the only way you get better is if you overpay once in a while and they really paid a lot for Luis Castillo. All right, the three teams that are being talked about the most, around Juan Soto, the player all waiting to hear about cardinals, Padres, and Dodgers, among those three teams, which team needs to make a deal for him the most. Well, I'm with you, buster. I don't know if you still believe it. I still think the Padres need him the most. The Padres are in a fight to win a playoff spot. They didn't win a playoff spot last year. They got everyone excited. And I think you look at their lineup, even when Fernando tatis junior comes back. And I think there are bad short. I think they're pitching is really good. And I think they would be beyond dangerous team if they were to get one Soto and go to tease junior's Soto and Manny Machado for the next three postseasons. I would take my chances with that. The pitching that they have. The cardinals of course need Juan Soto, the question is, do they need a starting pitcher or two even more? So does that get in the way of the Cardinals making a deal? And the Dodgers are 35 games over 500 right now and all sorts of things having gone wrong. I can see them saying we have everything it takes to get them, look at our lineup while we put Soto in it, but I'm going to put them as third as certainly third on someone who needs a team that needs Juan Soto because they don't need much. They're that good. Yeah, am I going to be talking with Jessie Rogers coming up here at my theory on the Dodgers is that they're goosing the Padres. They're trying to drive up the price, but that makes sense for you. Of course, those teams don't like each other. They're in the same division. Doctors could do whatever they want now with the money and resources they have. And they may say, let's get involved in this. And then the Padres are going to have to give up one more prospect, then they want to give up and let's make them do that. Let's make it hurt if they're going to get one Soto on their team. Last night, it looks like Wilson Contreras played his last game with the cubs and he's going to get traded, probably sometime on Tuesday based on what I was told over the weekend. The team's most mentioned in regards to him, the raise, the Astros, the Padres, when I've done radio about Contreras over the weekend, Tim, I've mentioned that, look, he's a all star, three time all star. He's a terrific offensive player, but I hear this over and over and over again from interested teams or teams that have at least taken a look at him. His defense is a concern. And they worry about catcher coming in and trying to meld with a pitching staff with just two months to go. What have you heard? Yeah, that's really hard to do. Look, the rays are so desperate for another hitter, at least to me. Even though they got David Peralta, I think they would put Wilson Contreras behind the plate and say, we'll figure this out. And yet, the rays win because of all the little things that make them better. And that's the coordination between the catcher and the pitcher. And if that doesn't work and they're only real strength right now, they're pitching is limited somehow because they don't have the right catcher. Maybe he goes somewhere else. The Astros catching has been so weak offensively. Can you imagine dusty baker adding Wilson Contreras to that lineup? I think dusty's the type that would say, look, we'll give up a little bit on framing here to get that guy's back in the order and they're hitting under 200 last I checked as a unit to catch in Houston. That might make them a World Series champion if they were to get Wilson get dressed. I understand the defense, but every once in a while, you got to say, this guy's going to hit a bunch of homers when he shows up. Jacob McGrath will return to the mets rotation on Tuesday against the Washington Nationals. It'll be more than a year to him, about a year and a month is his last outing in the big leagues. What do you expect? I'm really confused as to what to expect. Every time it goes out there, I expect him to be dominant because she's great. He's one of the best pictures we've ever seen. But you take a year away from this game, and now you're pitching on the biggest stage with all this pressure in the middle of a pen and race, I don't know what to expect. But my guess is he's going to pitch. He's going to pitch four or 5 innings. He's going to be really good and they're going to get him out of there. I know I've

There's <Speech_Male> no question about it. <Speech_Male> And it'll be <Speech_Male> interesting to see. <Speech_Male> I still think the <Speech_Male> Phillies in the braids are <Speech_Male> going to, <Speech_Male> <SpeakerChange> they're going to <Speech_Male> go for it. They're <Speech_Male> going to be buyers. <Speech_Male> I mean, I can't imagine <Speech_Male> either of <Speech_Male> those teams giving up. It's <Speech_Male> too early for that. <Speech_Male> Certainly, and <Speech_Male> I still <Speech_Male> believe in that talent. <Speech_Male> There, <Speech_Male> so I think that they <Speech_Male> will be going for <Speech_Male> I see <Speech_Male> the cubs as a seller <Speech_Male> and some pieces <Speech_Male> to sell. I <Speech_Male> don't think they'll sell <Speech_Male> Hendrix, but <Speech_Male> I can see <Speech_Male> half potentially <Speech_Male> I could see stroman <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> and certainly the catcher. <Speech_Male> That would <Speech_Male> be a big <SpeakerChange> one. <Speech_Male> Wilson Contreras <Speech_Male> is hit <Speech_Music_Male> very well. <SpeakerChange> I don't know if you <Speech_Male> did it well with his brother, <Speech_Music_Male> William, with the <Speech_Male> braves, <Speech_Music_Male> great catching <Speech_Music_Male> tandem with <Speech_Music_Male> darnold <Speech_Male> Contreras, but <Speech_Male> they have not <Speech_Male> really made a move <Speech_Male> toward <Speech_Male> extending Contreras <Speech_Male> and he isn't <Speech_Male> free agent after <Speech_Male> the year and <Speech_Male> you know a lot of <Speech_Male> teams, you know, it's <Speech_Male> been a down year for offense, <Speech_Male> but it's <Speech_Male> never been done <Speech_Male> for catching offense <Speech_Male> all <Speech_Male> over the place.

"Oh young is the artist that's. Oh young imagine naked as the record the song is symphony sweeping. Doctor Lars gotch prescribed this one for us this week. Discovery for me. What an indispensable just calming record this is. All two hours of it. Oh young is Robert oh Yang Russell and they typically have made in the past these really hyperactive hip hop and pop records. In fact, Rihanna would probably really love those records, not that I'm thinking about it like think jpeg mafia kind of style of just like ping ponging all over the place production. Yeah, yeah. And I'm speaking your language. As has happened to most people during this pandemic, old young just needed a space to exist outside of themselves and inside themselves at the same time in order to get some peace. And I read an interview with them that said, they actually thought ambient music was pretentious. I wanted nothing to do with it because it felt like there are Asian American felt to them like a white space and they didn't want to be in this place. But then they started talking at some productions that were quite ready to get and started stretching them out, letting them loop and then found themselves in a much more peaceful space. You know, it's a two hour album. And so suddenly two hours go by and you're like, wait, where am I? What have I been doing? I was really struck by the song titles because the names imply so much like there's one called tucked in my stomach. Yes, my weeping frame, my torn cuticles, and read that they're from a poem by tran lay called vegetal scape. And they describe their poem as and I'm oversimplifying it here. But in part about living with mental illness and how they make the world around them beautiful in spite of that, and this music feels like that and that sort of therapeutic way. I'm really glad that they decided that it's not strictly a white space because there are more and more artists that I'm discovering, especially from Latin America that are using ambient. And I've been a fan of ambient going back to 70s, right? I mean, I really like all that stuff. All the sound collage are the south landscape stuff. My analogy for ambient music is I just kind of made this up and tell me if you agree or you like it or not. It's like, you know how you get these stucco walls and homes in houses, some certain era. If you close your eyes and just run your hand over the edges and the contours of the stucco, that to me what ambient music is like, the cracks, the ups and downs of rallies, the texture of the sound, really like this record. Can I buy some pot from you? Well, I thought this would be a nice one to leave people with as we head into the weekend. I listened to it while taking a long, long walk on a very gray day. Just outside of D.C. and it just changed the color of everything around me and wonderful ways. The record is called imagine naked by oh young OH. And that'll do it for this week's new music Friday.

"Everybody was distracted. I don't know why probably because the all star but also very clue is really close. Tomorrow is the last game of, uh Of the first half. And I don't think that way. But, um I don't think we were on today really hard, special Leave. You want to win. You want to fight for for anything that that is in your control. Also, we are have to understand that business of team effort. I'm just gonna keep doing my job. The way I played, it is not going to change. Uh, does on everybody's, uh, work ethic and and job. We had to. We had to tune but also I can No cannot, um Ask everybody to play like I do or to play to play like like bison. I play everybody is different and not the they might be tired, But I mean, I'm here to win. I'm here to win. I'm here to compete, and that's what I like to have from from everybody else. We have an attack starts right now. I think we had to be turning around. But like I said, tougher, it's not. It's not individual for. I think the biggest thing that I took away from that. Or the biggest question I took away from that was When you single out yourself and Harvey What are you saying about Kris Bryant. And what are you saying about Anthony? Result? And what are you saying about Nico Horner? What are you saying about Ian happ, everybody. And what about Jason Heyward? What about like, Say what you want about J. Hey, he's having a terrible year. Statistically, I think he's always playing hard. Is it? Is it the outward emotion that he's talking about that Javi and Wilson are always running a little bit hot. Do you know what I mean? And and when they they are pissed when they they show the emotion that maybe some of the other guys don't outward. There's no doubt that I mean, I agree with that. Contreras plays hard. I don't believe there's another catcher in Major league baseball that has caught the number of games nor the number of innings that Wilson could. Tourist has caught your right and I think that Willie plays the game exceptionally hard when you start to When you start to focus on yourself and separate yourself from the rest of the team. You're you're you're treading in dangerous water as far as I'm concerned. Like and I would hope that If he's going to make these comments publicly, he made these comments privately to his teammates prior to making them publicly. I think you're always better off suggesting, you know, Speak of yourself. But don't talk about anybody else, Right? Like when you seclude yourself as playing heart legs are different than the other guys. What are you saying about the other guys? Kris Bryant has also reacted to this. I have not. I do not see this and I'll tell you why. David Ross also wasn't happy with Willson Contreras. I think the answer is pretty obvious. But Cubs fans what did you think about what Willson Contreras said. Was that a good thing? Were you happy to hear that? Or are you saying Well, why are you isolating yourself and having? And what are you saying that they do?
