Sharon Barner, Deputy Under Secretary of Commerce for Intellectual Property and Deputy Director of the USPTO said that "The USPTO has long been concerned about attempts to patent traditional knowledge, not only because it may result in an incorrectly granted patent, but also because it removes knowledge from the public domain."
