Stem cell patents are in the news

The agency that holds the patents on stem cells, WARF, has made a deal with the State of Wisconsin to wave the (disputed) patent licencing fees for companies in Wisconsin. The Governor of Wisconsin announced offerings of all sorts of deals to companies that move/start up in Wisconsin.

Makes investment in embryonic stem cell research less profitable for Texas and other states unless they’re willing to fight the patents or subsidize industry to the same extent by paying for the licensing fees of any company that needs it. This is more reason to go the ethical route.

(Also sounds like cheating on the part of the incumbent Wisconsin Governor, the month before the election.)
