Washington (CNN) – A small farmer from Indiana lost his patent dispute on Monday at the Supreme Court, a ruling that could have enormous impact in a variety of biotech fields.
The justices unanimously said Monsanto, the world's largest seed producer, has intellectual property control over its best-selling "Roundup Ready" soybeans.
"Roundup Ready" says it all . I hope they are held responsable when people start getting cancer .
Monsanto is a manufacturer of poisons and toxins. No government oversight at all. We all know who owns the politicians in DC. Monsanto is one of the "owners." Why doesn't CNN and other major news outlets do investigativE reporting on them? Simple answer. The news organizations are also owned by BIG BUSINESS.
This reminds of the government's "Big Blue" lawsuits against IBM from over 40 years ago. IBM sold mainframe computers and software to run them, yet IBM prohibited people who purchased the computers from writing their software. IBM claimed that any software written for the mainframes would have to rely in part upon IBM's operating system, which IBM had patented. Make a long story short, IBM lost that ridiculous argument. It was akin to buying a car and being told that you cannot customize it.
Well, I guess there needs to be some level of acknowledgment of where the seeds were obtained from. In this case, that acknowledgment needs to be in the form of money. I would hope that Monsanto would be willing to cut these farmers a break. How much of this stuff reproduces without the farmer's help?
WAKE UP PEOPLE! Monsanto is POISON! BUY ONLY ORGANIC!
watch the chinese they believe in patents
