sprgrss: This would be far more interesting to read is someone were to write the article based upon what the actual issues are and not some blithe drive-by article.

The vast majority of people upset with Monsanto and the court cases have zero clue what they are really about, but read overly misleading articles and form opinions based upon incomplete or distorted facts.


You've pretty much perfectly described 95% of the people posting in the politics tab.

3D print new ones.

cuzsis: What happens when all of the agricultural crops are patented?

If your poop contains patented DNA, you owe Monsanto a lot of money, I'm afraid.

clyph: ciberido: I say we take off and nuke Monsanto from orbit. It's the only way to be sure.

Assassinating their board of directors would be just as effective and much less messy.


During a meeting with their lawyers, pls.

tekmo: from my blood: Do not associate with Monsanto employees and associates. Do not allow your children to play with Monsanto employee's children.

Well NOW you tell me!

My ex's father was a Monsanto salesman, and Christ, what an asshole.

The ex turned out to be just as bad.


Well, the apple doesn't fall far from the tree, you know. And if it does, whoever picks it up gets sued.

The most outrageous case from Monsanto I've heard of it a farmer using non-Monsanto seed (that are not round-up-proof)
Monsanto see from a passing truck allegedly has some blown into his field and it mixed in with his seeds. When Monsanto found out they said all of his seed, whether round up ready or not, was subject to their patent because some of the seed had been mixed in. It was either pay Monsanto for seed he already paid someone else for, or throw it out.

Many folks protest Monsanto's business practices, like this Greenpeace protester spraying paint on a company research soybean field in Iowa.

Hahaha, was it a water soluble, VOC-free paint which won't poison the air or water table? Or is this one of those deals where, "fark the environment, we've got to protect the environment."

If Monsanto wants to protect their patented crop, they should be forced to cull them from every harvest regardless of what the farmer planted, especially if the farmer planted non-Monsanto seed and is trying to save it. Shouldn't Monsanto Corporation be required to remove their product from the farmer's harvest at their own corporate expense?

Dadoo: Why are they trying this case? I don't really see how Monsanto could lose. If you want to use Monsanto's seed, you have to play by their rules.

The case they should be trying is the one where, you're not using Monsanto's seed, but your neighbors are. I've read that Monsanto claims if your neighbor's pollen blows over onto your farm, and you use the seed that results - even unknowingly - you're liable. Sorry, but your neighbor should be responsible for that, not you.


Considering that Monsanto has a very high percentage of the market in soybeans, that scenario is all too likely and has happened.

/you have a right to put up your own seed if you act in good faith
//fark Monsanto, anyway - putting insecticides into the genes of a plant just makes resistance in pests happen that much faster
///why, yes, I AM an entomologist

I wish that Monsanto would be ordered to cease and desist all operations immediately.
