Discussion of the Washburn stem cell patent article in the LA Times

I have an article criticizing the Washburn piece on stem cell patents, which can be found here.

It is ironic to note that Californians, when faced with the prospect of paying patent royalties to folks in Wisconsin, are talking about invalidating the patents of the folks in Wisconsin but are separately planning to obtain "California" patents to charge other people royalties. Large-scale state-funding of research is taking some interesting twists. And no one is talking about how Florida Prepaid Postsecondary will play out. Wait for those patent lawsuits in state courts!
