Supreme Court rules Prometheus cannot patent ‘laws of nature’

What is Prometheus and why do they want to patent the laws of nature?  See this through RawStory at Agence France-Presse
First of all, why in the heck would we allow anyone to patent the laws of nature and second, how will this ruling effect other crazy nature patents that threaten farmers and seed supplies all over the world? I don't know, that is why I am asking you.

Excerpt from the courts decision which is available at the Prometheus link above.

"monopolization of [the basic tools of scientific and technological work] through the grant of a patent might tend to impede innovation more than it would tend to promote it."
