The DNA of one organism is inserted into the genes of an unrelated species, generating the desired trait in every cell of the target organism and producing genetically modified food. This genetic engineering is having some benefits but create social and ethical challenges for the society. In the process, scientists created a technology that has deformed into a creature of economics, of the privatization of the natural world, and of international trade. It is obvious, that the next frontier in the issue over genetically modified organisms (GMOs) distinct itself in the reference of intellectual property rights. Policy makers should use a broader view to examine the critical implications for the international community and reshape this application of intellectual property in line with the long-term public interest. The problem is not that genetic engineering technology subsists, but how that technology is being used. This article has raised for discussion some important issues to consider as to social and ethical dimensions of the technology and how it is being utilized.
