Crime Scenario?

I am doing an assignment and need others oppions on the questions asked. This is a PowerPoint assignment.
Crime Scenario – A doctor has applied for a new patent on new technology involving the use of advanced computers to create a new type of organism. One of the goals of his research is to genetically alter these organisms for use in human organ growth and transplant. The doctor says that if he is not granted a patent, he intends to continue his research, either in the United States or overseas.
Should this activity be a violation of the law, a deviant act, or none of the above?
Is this research an abuse of technology?
If this kind of activity is a violation of the law or should be, how can it be stopped, especially if the doctor goes overseas?
Are there victims of this type of crime?
