In the past year investigators have solved dozens of violent crimes, many of which were cold cases, using DNA submitted to sites like Ancestry.com. This new technique has been criticized for circumventing some of the laws that restrict the use of government DNA databases like the Codis system. For example, Maryland police are barred from identifying suspects through relatives in criminal DNA databases. However, using private sector databases like GEDMatch, they can and have done exactly that. While any crime solved is a positive, this technique calls into question: who has the rights to our DNA?
