Should we protest patents of DNA sequences?

If seems almost unbelievable that our legal system would allow the
patenting of non-inventions such as DNA sequences.   So far there
hasn't been much traffic in this group defending this practice.
I wouldn't mind reading the other side of the issue.

Maybe this is the place to start a ground-swell of protest to this 
practice. I'd hate to be sued because my PCR primers
violate some companies patent rights.
