Ancestry.com takes DNA ownership rights from customers and their relatives
A word to the wise: Read the complete terms of service.Read the fine print before you send in your sample to Ancestry.com . The bottom line is you consent to give ownership of your genetic information to Ancestry.com . Ancestry.com can use your genotype for anything it wants. They can use methods to copy it, transcribe it, modify it and use it for whatever purposes they want and gain profit from it.
So, you still own your DNA, however Ancestry.com also owns it. It is not a partnership. Normally when a company owns something that they don't own they pay a royalty payment each time it is used. Essentially you are paying them to use your DNA. What do you get in return ? Their marketing literature explains it.
