I'm so surprised.

I despise Monsanto and I hate how they've gotten laws passed to favor them but I have to say that oddly enough, I agree with the court. If a company spent the amount of money they spent to genetically modify the seed to it's current state, they should be able to reap the benefits of that. Now, I also think they absolutely have a monopoly and I think we need to take a serious look at breaking them up to start to control some of that. They do however have a right to make a profit from their product. Damn, I hate that I even said that. It's true, I still hate it though.

How about if you don't think they are a monopoly, you provide something substantial as proof? I bet if you do, it'll be something from the internet!

I'm tired so maybe I didn't read that correctly... what I got was (1) farmer bought from Monsanto and grew a crop (2) then replanted his crops with some of the beans from his last year's crop and beans from another source and thusly, he got sued? Or did I not read that right? Need sleep....

Well I think Parker Brothers thinks it's better but the United States still benefits.

Monsanto has plenty of competition....Pioneer, Syngenta, Bayer and hundreds of independents. Not Monsanto's fault that their research, field results, yields etc., knock the competiton out.
