Abstract: Intellectual property (IP) protection for bioinformatics databases plays a key role in accelerating development of biological sciences and biotechnological industry. This paper presents current and global position of IP protection in bioinformatics database. A protection method has been proposed after analysing characteristics of bioinformatics databases and considering different database protection methods. Further, the paper seeks to analyse the diffusion process of biological information and develops an argument that bioinformatics primary database should be put in public domain, though they may be given financial subsidies by the government or other public funds according to the diffusion phase of biological information. Suitable methods of IP protection in the bioinformatics secondary database have been suggested.
