Mus Musculus and Homo Sapiens: Murine Metaphysics and the Canadian Supreme Court
This article examins the patenability of genetically engineered higher life forms in Canada and Singapore by reference to the recent decision of the Canadian Supreme Court on the patentability of a genetically engineered laboratory mouse. The Canadian Supreme Court, rather that examining the policy behind patent protection, addressed this question primarily through the lens of statutory interpretation. This article discusses the reasoning of the Canadian Supreme Court and considers its application in Singapore.
