Overview

Mills (National U. of Ireland-Galway) outlines the debate concerning problems, particularly moral-related ones, associated with modern biotechnology, and examines the controversy surrounding the role of patent law in biotechnological inventions. He contends that elucidating the moral concerns associated with modern biotechnology will help identify the benefits the technology can confer, and allow decisions about the role of law in its development and application to be taken on a more informed basis. His topics include the development of a European moral regime, the development of patent law in the US, the language of patent law and biotechnological inventions, and legal protection under the Biotechnology Directive 1998.
