Privacy, Property or Permission: Need our Models for Regulating Personal Genetic Material Be Mutually Exclusive

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

The argument considers in favour of the extension of property rights to individuals in respect of their genetic materials and information derived from those materials. Laurie suggests that existing medico-legal paradigms do not offer sufficient privacy protection for individuals over information gleaned from their genetic material. The author also discusses the lack of public confidence in genetic research, acknowledging the value of participation into genetic and medical research to the scientific community. He draws on cases and comparative law to consider the role of a property model in the thesis.
