CULT: Red irises

I remember back in the late 70's when the first near-black came out... when
it was thought there would never be a black iris.   And now we have so many
good black irises.   Somehow, I think we'll be the same with red irises in a
few years.   I note    Dr. Dan Meckenstock has a book coming out on breeding
red irises  (AIS bulletin, pg. 126), so I'm sure with everyone who's working
on it... we'll be seeing some promising irises in the future.   What
concerns me, is the aspect of a 'patent' on an iris, what will this all mean
to us.   We all share irises so much... there are so many who cross irises,
every color imaginable, and we don't always know the parentages of every
iris cross... so who is to know in the future in an iris contains the gene
of a patented iris?   Or does it matter?    If there are twenty good reds,
all crossed with each other, who is to know what is in the red iris of the
