"Weeden prefers that genetic information be protected not by privacy law, but by property law. He asserts that, '[genetic information is best protected as an incorporeal thing' and treated as quasi property and as intellectual property."

"The adoption of the property model, as stated by scholars like Weeden, 'would allow these states the future flexibility to better regulate even the possession of someone else's genetic information, an option not available under a privacy regime.'" [At 37-8.]
