26 religious institutions file suit against large genetics research firms.

here is my favorite bit:

"Therefore, we are asking for further review. We aren't interested
in making a copy or clone, we just want to know how. The law [DMCA]
is very broad. Who do they claim the Copyright holder is for the
Human Genenome?
The law is very vague, and related to the World
Intellectual Property Organization. We are a US Corporation and feel
we should not be controlled by the WIPO. You would think with all
the anti-globalization protests around the world the US government
would get the picture. "

It is very ironic that US corporations don't seem to mind the DMCA until it starts to cut into their profits.
