I was flipping through a Science magazine and noticed an ad for Taq
polymerase with a disclaimer at the bottom which said that something to
the effect that certain procedures which called for Taq are covered by a
patent and that no license came with purchases from this vendor. I took
that to mean that if you use this for PCR, you're breaking the law.
However, why else would anyone want Taq polymerase?
