Monsanto's Bean Counters

Thanks to Melba Kurman for bringing the following writ to the US Supreme Court to my attention:

As she says, the analogy struck on the bottom of Page 15 is essentially using RepRap as a model for the behaviour of a living system for the purposes of "intellectual property" law.  The wheel has definitely turned full circle...

I wonder, if that argument holds, how far you would get arguing that, as a living thing is deemed to be a type of RepRap machine, then, ipso facto, all living things must fall under the RepRap open licence...
