PATENTING IN "BIOTECHNOLOGY IS MURDER"



PHILLIP JONES WROTE:

Feb. 13, 2000

Hello again,

I really enjoyed reading "Biotechnology is Murder." I especially liked the fact that the biotech company was concealing ... [matter deleted by Dirk to keep mystery unrevealed]. I never thought that I would find a novel where this technique ... would play a crucial role. In addition to information on biotechnology, biotech start-ups, and patent law, you managed to pack in a lot of information on a variety of topics.

As a patent attorney, I do have a few nitpicky comments. ... [First two comments deleted by Dirk]. And, [as a patent attorney], I must admit that the idea of a venture capitalist performing due diligence without a patent attorney rankled me a bit at first. But then, I decided that Broadmoore was the type of guy who shoots from the hip.

Once again, these are just minor points, and it was fun to read a novel where such things even come up. I look forward to Ben Candidi's next adventure.
