SENATOR BOYCE

1.         I share the view of other Committee members that naturally occurring material, such as genes, should not be able to be patented.

2.         However, I remain very concerned that any changes in one part of patent law may have unintended consequences across a system which has underpinned most technological and industrial advances for centuries.

3.         No changes should be made to patent law without the expert advice of organisations such as IP Australia and the Australian Law Reform Commission.
