Body Parts, Property Rights and the Ownership of Human Biological Materials

Creator: E. Richard Gold | Law - 1996

Given the international aspects of both intellectual property law and biotechnology, this book will be of interest throughout the world and especially valuable in common-law (most English-speaking) countries.

About this book
In Body Parts, E. Richard Gold examines whether the body and materials derived from it -- such as human organs and DNA -- should be thought of as market commodities and subject to property law. Analyzing a series of court decisions concerning property rights, Gold explores whether the language and assumptions of property law can help society determine who has rights to human biological materials. Gold observes that the commercial opportunities unleashed by advances in biotechnology present a challenge to the ways that society has traditionally valued the human body and human health. In a balanced discussion of both commercial and individual perspectives, Gold asserts the need to understand human biological materials within the context of human values, rather than economic interests. This perceptive book will be welcomed by scholars and other professionals engaged in questions regarding bioethics, applied ethics, the philosophy of value, and property and intellectual property rights. Given the international aspects of both intellectual property law and biotechnology, this book will be of interest throughout the world and especially valuable in common-law (most English-speaking) countries.

    THE BEST!!!

    0 5/5 FromTeacher2Nurse (Eastern North Carolina) - See all my reviews This review is from: Human Body: An Illustrated Guide to Every Part of the Human Body and How It Works (Paperback) I bought this book on vacation before I even began taking Anatomy and Phys (a prerequisite to the nursing program). I just wanted to know a little more about what I was going to be learning. I COULD NOT PUT IT DOWN! The illustrations are really good, labeled well with simple and concise explanations. It's a little to big to fit "in your pocket" but easily fits in your purse or front pocket of your bookbag. I carried it around everywhere while I took A&P - much easier than lugging the big A&P textbook to the doctor's office, laundrymat, etc. I still keep it in my bookbag now and in class if the instructor says, "As you'll recall learning XYZ in anatomy..." I can whip it out and look it up quickly to refresh my memory. GREAT BOOK!!! My four-year-old likes to "study" this book while I'm studying - enjoyable even for preschoolers! 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , March 3, 2005

    Not as good as the reviews said and less than I expected

    First of all, I already have Netter's Atlas of Human Anatomy, 3rd Edition. I was looking for a more general, simpler atlas of anatomy with explantion of fundamental physiology without the complexities that Netter's incorporates into almost all cross-sections/plates.The positive things about this book is that it has good and easy to understand guides on physiology and common illnesses. Almost all major body parts are described with clear to-the-point short paragraphs.However, even though the book is full of color illustrations on every page, they are over-simplified to the extent that many are either out of proportion or poorly drawn. For example, on the page where it's describing how air and food pass through the laryx then food goes to esophagus and air goes into trachea, the three diagrams there show different sizes for epiglottis and pharynx, even though apparently it's explaining the same system!!! I would really have to say the diagrams/illustrations are... 3/5 Aramaki (Earth) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Big hit for this homeschooling physician!

    This is a fantastic tool for a homeschool unit on the human body. I use it with my 6 and 4 year olds, but it is probably intended for 8-10 year olds. (I'm a physician trying to homeschool, and so my unit on the human body is probably far from typical!)If you don't homeschool, this is still worth having. Use it with your kids to review what they are covering in their lessons. (I believe that's technically called 'afterschooling'!) I don't think it would work well in a classroom, though. Way too small; it needs to be used with maybe 2-3 kids max at a time.I get it out for every lesson of our human body study. We look at the system we are studying, and it is a tremendous visual aid to understand the physiology.For example: Today we talked about respiration. The diaphragm can be tricky to explain, so I used this model. With the forceps I pushed the diaphragm piece up and down while making exaggerated sound effects.

    Great idea, poorly constructed

    I wanted to love this, but I just couldn't because of the poor construction. The book is a great tool for introducing kids to the human body and it does so in a fun and conversational tone. The diagram of the organs was a big hit with my kids and they spent quite a bit of time matching them up to the poster. The organs themselves fascinate the kids with the squishy, not quite slimy feel. My biggest complaint is with the skull and clear plastic exterior. The skull on our body never clicked when closed, so it would constantly fall off after we attached the exterior pieces. And don't even get me started on trying to close the case around the body. Ours just never seemed to line up right. All of the bones, muscles, and hard plastic pieces are attached with these little (very bendable and breakable) plastic knobs that fit into holes. The bones and muscles don't always fit right and we have a hard time manuvering them. If we move them around too much all of the other various pieces start... 5/5 RyemsonRox (Golden Isles) - See all my reviews = Durability:, April 13, 2012

    HUMAN BODY MODEL

    We bought this toy for our 4 1/2 year old grandson who is always asking questions about how his body works. The smile on his face when he opened this gift was priceless! There are many small parts included, but with adult assistance, he enjoyed taking the body parts out and examining them. The pieces are made of a very soft plastic that almost feels slimy, but isn't. The "touch" added to the mystery of the organs and generated many more questions...a very good learning toy! A chart is included, labeling the body parts for easy identification. The molded outer body is made of two pieces of see-through hard plastic that snaps together easily. (Lay the backside of the body on the table while you replace the body parts and then snap the frontside in place to hold everything together.) A fun, fact-filled book is also included - full of great pictures and facts that are fun to read. This toy was perfect for our inquisitive grandson who is able to safely play with small parts.

    0 1/5 Amazon Customer "chickenlittle25" (Carlisle, PA) - See all my reviews This review is from: The Human Body (DVD-ROM) I spent 1/2 hour trying to figure out the registration code (try telling 0 from O and B from 8) only to find out that all this thing does is take me to a website where they expect me to buy more things. There is no actual program. No human body, no bones, no interactive stuff EXCEPT a link to their website to buy more programs. I bought a disk that only lets me into a website where they want me to buy more stuff? I can't believe Amazon is allowing these con artists to sell their product here. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , December 4, 2010

    0 3/5 dh. Dudley "John 14:6" (Sacramento, CA) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: The Human Body (DVD-ROM) Probably OK for Elementry, Middle School, and High School level kids; and maybe adults with little knowledge on the human body. However, I found it to be somewhat too basic for my purposes. Would prefer many more graphics, photos, and much deeper in depth material. Still, not a bad tool for learning and relearning the amazing human body. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , January 16, 2010

    Excellent value, engaging graphics

    0 5/5 Thompson "TeachontheBeach" - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: The Human Body (DVD-ROM) I purchased this product to use with my elementary Science classes. It is easy to use, with compact yet thorough definitions. The graphics really make this software engaging and fun. The voiceover is informative, but not overwhelming for multiple ages. I am also a physician and I think this provides a thorough introduction to Anatomy and Human Biology for kids. It's a great value for the price as well. Mostly presentation style. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , September 24, 2009

    Great coloring book!

    0 5/5 W.Q. (Riverside, CA) - See all my reviews This review is from: My First Human Body Book (Dover Children's Science Books) (Paperback) This is a great coloring book about the human body! We are using it in our home school and it includes the following systems: skeletal, muscular, circulatory, immune, respiratory, digestive, urinary, nervous, and integumentary. I am using it with my 6 year old son and it is just right for his age group. He is having a great time with it! For my 10 year old son I am using another book from the Dover Coloring Series. It is called Human Anatomy by Margaret Matt. This second book is much more detailed and is just right for him.
