Hi there, I'm doing a bit of general research on the canon and such. I'm wondering if Ingen maintained the monopoly/exclusivity on dinosaur embryos? I've put this here cos I'm more in touch with the movies than the novels these days.
Now, we know from the movies and JP: The Game, that the barbasol can with the stolen embryos never left the island. But I'm wondering if there is hints or knowledge outside of that fact that perhaps, somewhere down the line, Ingen maybe gave others the right to create dinosaurs, perhaps sold or "contracted" the technology to others, or maybe there were other attempts to get embryos from them that were more successful (than the attempts I know of?) Afterall, I'd imagine they would balance the profits of holding the exclusive with the profits generated from subsidiaries or such doing similar things?
Or, by the time we reach Fallen Kingdom, Ingen are still the only company in the entire world with the technology? Do we know how far the company Dodgson was stealing for ever got? Could JP scientists have leaked the info on creation? Could the process/tech have been stolen or the likes from Sorna? That place is a hot-bed for trespassers, after-all.
Then again, the JP "kind of a ride" with Mr. DNA sort of gives the entire process away so in effect, from the early days, it was never a big secret.
What are your thoughts please? I like the idea that Ingen did it first, but I have to wonder if they were the "last" to do it. I vaguely recall something from the novels explaining in more detail rival companies, but it's been a long time since reading.
Any help or ideas are appreciated, whether it's canon fact or speculative. Thank you!
