Anyone know where the "Patent Amendment (Human Genes and Biological
Materials) Bill 2011" is at ?

I'm a bit confused about the timetable for when things are voted on,
become legislation, etc. etc. - so maybe someone can clarify that.

There's an interesting article at :

And Malcolm Turbull  ( Bless him - though he put me *last* on his election
leaflet ) previously had something to say :

Passionate and confused,
