Abstract [en]

Human genetic resources are increasingly considered as marketable goods, buttheir value goes beyond the simple and immediate private value. In contrast to otherbiological resources, commercial use does not focus upon the material itself butrather upon the genetic information it contains. Information goods are then usuallysubject to intellectual property rights, but in the biological and life science domains,property rights can have a negative influence upon the proper allocation of severalgoods, including genetic material or goods that are related to it.Considering this scenario, the purpose of the paper is to discuss how to regulate theaccess to and use of biochemical and human genetic material currently consideredas part of the market framework. Looking beyond the protection of traditional publicgoods (such as land or water), the paper emphasizes the debate around theprogressive commodification of human genetic resources facilitated by an improperuse of intellectual property rights. The discourse around commons is used toevaluate alternative tools and strategies to the issue of private appropriation ofhuman genetic resources and natural compounds.
