Hi netters,
Thought i would spark a discussion for any interested netters.

Do people think that giving plasmids (purchased from biotech comapinies)
to others labs is similar to software piracy.
I dont believe I have seen warnings when purchasing plasmids that they are
not to be distributed etc... as you do with software..
This is good as it cuts down costs =).....

What do you all think out there....
post any discussion...
