Patents on DNA and Molecules (or How Bill Gates is Still Making Billions of Dollars)

Posted in Bill Gates, Patents at 7:38 am by Dr. Roy Schestowitz

Summary: Another timely analysis, filled with new links to articles, about where Bill Gates is investing his great wealth which he gained by illegal practices at Microsoft

A lot of press, excluding the corporate press, is covering the criminal behavior of those who stash trillions of dollars in offshore tax havens. This is what’s causing an economic turmoil and it should be recognised that the world’s richest people are still getting richer at everyone’s expense. They just get better at hiding it. Bill Gates, who has a tax-exempting foundation, is widely lauded for giving away his money, but he actually increased his wealth by about ten percent or more in the past year alone. He makes a lot of money from his investment in monopolies, one of which he co-founded after dropping out of college.

There is a report in the Gates-funded Seattle Times about the PR campaign which seeks to capture the minds of gullible people. Despite a promising opening paragraph, this piece is hogwash as it in no way follows through with a sceptical analysis of Gates’ agenda.

“…it should be recognised that the world’s richest people are still getting richer at everyone’s expense.”Over at at TED, a favoured venue for Gates marketing [1, 2], PR is being seeded yet again, leading to suggestions that Oprah, a routine Gates/Microsoft PR outlet [1, 2], is being replaced in some sense by the less superstitions-unfriendly TED. Well, as put last year by Gates’ boosters at Forbes (which glorifies the world’s richest without exceptions), TED is turned into something like Oprah, i.e. PR in disguise (Oprah is also notorious for promoting superstitions), for those in the business of power, which necessitates dumbing people down.

Gates has been trying to seed ignorance in the minds of the world’s less educated by teaching them to depend on corporations for their basic needs. It’s not gentle capitalism but coerced capitalism. Sadly enough, Imperial College does some PR along those lines (probably begging for grants) passing off the GMO investor and lobbyist as “pro-farming” in pieces like this (marketing photo included).

The world’s poorest people need not more dependence on the super-rich. They need social-economic justice. They need not a ‘handout’ of patents. As put last year in the Indian press:

However, it [Gates Foundation] faces the criticism of aligning with interests of big pharma and agri-business giants such as Monsanto and Cargill. Raikes debunks such criticism.

Of course he does, that’s his job. But as we have shown here before, those critics are exactly those who understand the big agenda. Will Hill quoted the other day an article/book which says:

From The Great American Fraud, 1905 – Why Medicine Should Not be Run Like a Business

“One of the most disgusting and disgraceful features of the patent medicine business is the marketing of letters sent by patients to patent medicine firms Correspondence is solicited by these firms under the seal of sacred confidence. When the concern is unable to do further business with a patient it disposes of the patient’s correspondence to a letter broker who in turn disposes of it to other patent medicine concerns at the rate of half a cent for each letter”

Microsoft ran like this and Bill Gates wants to be in medicine.

A PDF of the book can be downloaded from Google.

Recently we saw Indian patent battles over the sorts of patents which Gates has been promoting in poorer nations in Asia and Africa. See the article “Patent’s Defeat in India Is Key Victory for Generic Drugs“. Gates is investing (for profit) in some of these patents that impede generics and he routinely tells us the lie that without patents effective drugs would no longer be discovered. He actually used this logic to slam Free software and promote software patents in April 2008. On that same occasions he said “there is this thing called the GPL, which we disagree with.” In other words, Gates hates genuine sharing, he only pretends to share, when it comes to seeding a patents dependency.

“…Gates and his rich friends are using ‘charity’ to spread patents and conduct clinical trials with no risk of litigation when everything fails very seriously, as sometimes it does.”The reality of the matter is, as we wrote in dozens of articles before (with many supportive citations), Gates and his rich friends are using ‘charity’ to spread patents and conduct clinical trials with no risk of litigation when everything fails very seriously, as sometimes it does. Watch this new article from India Brian Druker is said to have “invented the drug’s molecule,” whatever it means to ‘invent’ a molecule. We need to stop ‘owning’ or monopolising everything. It is good for nobody except the tiny minority which hoards all the patents. At the top of this pyramid, considering where the capital for patents comes from, we have people like Bill Gates and his friend Nathan Myhrvold. Resist them, they’re your biggest enemies. They try to ‘own’ the world.
