It's good in that the patients may benefit. People are making fun of "cow protection" and all. I am sure they were not mocking at nature. At the end we could not make those medicines here. But America could protect and sponsor, but not OUR government. Reason: each one has his own. reason...

There are 3 "punnakkus". Punnakku is penultimate derivative. Coconut Punnakku which is eaten by us like biscuits. (rice punnakku is used as manure. And cow-dung-cake is either iused for making Agni or used as disinfectant before drawing rangolis or "chulas" before or after firewood cooking. I don't know why "kumutty" was excluded for this treatment

Anybody in the world have the rights to file a patent in any technology.

Cow urine itself is not patentable. As it is naturally occurring without human intervention.
But if you can do something with cow urine to make it useful in some manner (which has not done ever before) then you basically invented something with the use of cow urine, which is patentable. As by filing a patent, you are declaring to that country that you can use cow urine for doing this and this to improve your life. People will like it, buy it and you will be rich.

If the question is about the knowledge we have in india, is being exploited in US, then you must know about TKDL. It is basically a traditional knowledge digital library being supported by Indian government to publish all traditional knowledge India has. This way no one can patent it, once published.

Related to cow urine, if you feel that there is any patent that claims same information, that is known to Indians since ages, you can appeal to US government and that patent will be invalidated.

At the end, those patents will either be claiming information that was never known to Indians, or we need some indian to be pro-active and file a complaint against those patents.

US government will grant all those applications, related to which they do not find any published document. Ultimately, its for the benefit of the world.

Awarding of a patent does not mean that the product is approved for human consumption.
For it to be approved for human consumption as medicine it has to be approved by FDA.
Cow urine gas NOT been approved for human conception.

What Does the Patent Mean?
World Intellectual Property Organisation (WIPO) defines a patent as:
"An exclusive right to a product or a process that generally provides a new way of doing something, or offers a new technical solution to a problem."
Since patents are territorial rights, they need to be applied for in different countries for them to be enforceable there. CSIR, in collaboration with, Govigyan Anusandhan Kendra, for instance, holds five patents from the US and one from China.
It does not mean the US Patent Office recognises or validates the discoveries. It simply means that they recognise CSIR’s rights over them.
The legitimacy of such claims of medicinal properties of cow urine is still a debated issue. Moreover, whether these apparent therapeutic benefits are exclusive to cows (and not other animals) is another question that needs to be answered through further research in the area.

The Message
The message below the image reads: “While ignorant Indian liberals are making fun of cows, US Universities and multinational corporations have obtained six patents for products made of cow urine.”

Are US universities and multinational corporations involved? NO.
Has the United States of America ‘obtained’ patents for products made of cow urine? NO again.
The United States Patent and Trade Office has ‘granted’ the patents to assignee Council of Scientific and Industrial Research. Granted, not obtained.
Here is a report from The Hindu for the patent from 2002:

The original Wattsapp message was misleading and very old (2002).
A patent is issued does not mean that the product works as promised by the patent submitter.

It just validates that the product or process is unique to that patent submitter.

'Kummutty aduppu' must have been excluded from this treatment for the following reason.
It has its own space for storing the burnt ashes, after it has been used for cooking.
Even is the ash does spill down, it does not matter since ash is pure and purifying!
It may be one of the several vibhoothis accepted as holy - just as the ash obtained from burning the firewood and the ash formed due to wildfires.

But the ashes purity stays as such only if used immediately after collection. But in the North like Ujjain or even in Shirdi perhaps they use the just burnt human body ashes for the day's first aarti called Kaakkad aarti. This is more sacred and least commercial.

You are right!
No one would care for the ash of an unrelated human being!
Forget about it buying it by paying money.
To me the Kaakkad Arthi sounds intriguing.
Maybe it is to remind all the good/ bad/ ugly people that
it is what everyone will eventually end up becoming one day!
A handful of ash! :(
