how very forward-thinking! baby-steps, but welcomed.

Dear David:

Funny, at a meeting the other day the point was raised that patent pools and standard setting have had the effect of stifling innovation by freezing industries into older, established technologies. Not sure if that's true, but it would be ironic (albeit counterintuitive) if it were.

Thanks for the comment.

This is not a pool, strictly speaking, for several reasons. And so far in most gene dx and non-rx markets for gene patents, there are no inflexible standard that would stifle competition.
Main prob is gene-by-gene exclusivity, and this cd help remedy that.

Patent pools are an intriguing and progressive addition to the traditional options in patent law. I look forward to learning the results of this experiment.
