Well, people are going to start copyrighting everything. Celebrities
who copyright their DNA could stop clones-- and unwanted paternity
suits. In the past, the poor celebrity would have to pay child
support. No longer. He could sue the woman for creating a derivative
work without a license! Copying 50% of the DNA sure doesn't sound
like fair use to me.

Of course, this turns all petri dishes, pipettes and whatever other
devices used by the cloners into copyright circumvention technology.
The Bushies don't need to ban stem cell research per se. They can
just use the DMCA. In fact, it would be against the law to even talk
about how to make clones. Dmitry Skylarov could have some cell mates
with PhDs in bio. The FBI could start raiding all of the bio
conferences too looking for bio hackers.
