Business Perspective Pro: DNA laboratories are able to sell a state utility service to virtually anyone throughrepparttar postal service. The margin on DNA tests is high, and free home kits can be sent across international borders at a very low cost. French labs are much fewer thanrepparttar 137869 number of labs in other countries, andrepparttar 137870 likelihood of business being conducted outside France is quite high. Large international laboratories could predatorily price their tests torepparttar 137871 point where conducting a DNA test can no longer be done locally. DNA labs that are set up inside France will benefit from this legislation because French citizens are not permitted to conduct a test outside ofrepparttar 137872 country. Although industry protection was notrepparttar 137873 reason for adding this article torepparttar 137874 civil code, French labs capturerepparttar 137875 entire national market for paternity testing. Con: Article 16 almost creates a public sector for paternity testing. The market size is reduced because fewer people will be willing conduct a test because ofrepparttar 137876 increased complexity. In other countries, such asrepparttar 137877 UK and Germany, an individual can conduct a test almost whimsically. Having this new technology available torepparttar 137878 general public at an affordable price has expandedrepparttar 137879 market size and allowed businesses to grow. In France, prices are relatively fixed. Consumers make choices based more on location than on price and quality. The legislation also creates an entry barrier for other companies to enterrepparttar 137880 French market. In order for a laboratory inrepparttar 137881 UK to compete in France, it would need to expand operations and build insiderepparttar 137882 country. This infeasibility deters many businesses from expanding into France. Conclusion To some, red tape is an annoyance; to others, it is due process. Although Article 16-11 forces French citizens to undergo a more lengthy process when conducting a paternity test and hinders business competition,repparttar 137883 article servesrepparttar 137884 best interest ofrepparttar 137885 people. To make this legislation less burdensome,repparttar 137886 court-appointed lawyer should be paid for byrepparttar 137887 state. This will allow more citizens to findrepparttar 137888 answers to their family-relation questions.
