"It is true, and thus the question of whether it is sad or happy has no meaning whatever."

Science is best when discussed: leave your thoughts and ideas in the comments!!

As a big proponent of open research, I think the recent trend of patenting and copyrighting everything - from genes to chemicals to the word "hott" - is bloody stupid and scary. A new survey from the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) suggests that intellectual property wrangling in science is doing noticeable damage to the field. The details are sketchy, really, but their implications are clear: greed is bad for everyone.

Now, can we have more PLoS please?
