Abstract

In the three years since the US Supreme Court’s decision in AMP v Myriad, there has been much debate and speculation about the impact of the Myriad case on the biotech industry, particularly on the status of gene patents. Was it a significant decision or, as Lord Tennyson might have argued, just another decision in a myriad of single instances that make up a confused and confusing law of patents?
