First of all, I am just kidding, don't shoot...

Human DNA cannot be patented, but sequences that it does not contain are patentable.
Now, we have the most powerfull computation network, and we can produce Google (100^100) patents, claiming rights to entire field of human genetics. Can we do merged computations?
As a nice side effect, the patent registration system will be efficiently DDos'ed

This gives me an interesting dilemna.

I'm generally in favor of hardware patents but opposed to software patents.

DNA patents would be for a physical product but DNA also is software code.

As it just occured to me, I can patent a pattern, or a range of patterns, perhaps. Say, range of 51-characters patterns starting with 5...
And that will be the end of Bitcoin.
