Brinson & Radcliffe (1997) say that a trademarks are "marks and words, names, symbols, or devices used by manufacturers of goods and providers of services to identify their goods and services, and to distinguish their goods and services from goods manufactured and sold by others." For Example, the Trademark `Splinter Cell' is used by the company Ubi Soft to say that this game belongs to the company and so other companies can't use `Splinter Cell' in any title they create.

    It should not be legal to patent genes, because doing so can infringe on people's right to life. Gene patenting is an extremely controversial issue.

From a business stand point it can mean extreme profits and market control for the rights of certain genes. There are several points that need to be addressed in order to understand why it is so critical not to allow it to be legal to patent genes. It is important to first understand exactl
