are these the injected kind?

This is a discussion on are these the injected kind? within the Freshwater Journals forums, part of the Aquarium Photography category; --> I think they're trademarked or copyrighted or something though, so you cannot sell them (or at least sell them and get caught)....

The term would be "patented". They have reached the Asian markets and can be distributed even at fry size.I doubt people distributing them can get caught despite the rule that these are patented.

Where are you located? I don't see the rule of these fish being patented enforced strictly at all but better not do it just to be on the safe side. I don't see the rule enforced here strictly in Asia.

i dont think patent laws extend to giveing it away unless its in masses. if ur tank gets overcrowded because of fry and u give away the fry i dont think that their is anything they can do about that. it would be like buying a patented boat and then giveing it back to a dealership that doesnt have them because u got another.

Personally, I think patenting an animal is ridiculous. Protecting them is one thing, but if you can get a patent on your "creation" when does it end? Digusting...
(I'm going to breed a guinea pig with my chinchilla and call it a chillipig. When I get it patented I'll sue anyone who tries to do the same, because I'm God afterall. Oh wait... no I'm not.)
Sorry, had to add some cynical humor when I read that glofish were "patented".

Enjoy your glofish though, I doubt you have much to be worried about. And I think that they are beautiful. Why not have a tank full as a night light? ;)
