copyright your DNA and do it now... before it's too late!

Harper's August issue (the one with the “Eggers Rant”) has a British poet/waitress’ patent application for her DNA. It’s billiant. This is the point where technology and philosophy collide. How do we qualitatively define self when it’s been quantitated? Are you more than your DNA? Will the business and governement worlds care?

What happens if a twin copyrights his own DNA before the other twin gets to it? Does that mean that the non-copyrighted twin (who was BORN with his own DNA) can't clone himself without paying his twin? That's kinda crummy. I'd sue my parents for taking all that Clomid, if I were in that situation.
