Blues_X: So, if their seeds are blown onto your property and germinate, they can sue you for not paying for them?Am I reading that right?
meow said the dog: It is not something which I have the familiarity but sometimes I do the wearing of the boy briefs because they have the comfort so perhaps for the boy this is also the thing which provides to he the comfort. Was this the boyshorts or the thong of the underwear? I am not someone who has the assureness of this but would wish for learning of so.
highendmighty: This lawsuit brought to you by the makers of Agent Orange - destroying food for 3 generations.
Shadi: The judge is ruling that the farmers cannot sue to prevent Monsanto from suing. The farmers were preemptively suing even though Monsanto has stated that it has not sued anyone nor any interest in suing.As much as I don't like Monsanto, the ruling makes complete sense to me.
Teiritzamna: Oh for the love of . . .1) the Supreme Court denied to hear the case. This isnt a ruling, they generally deny to hear +99% of cases.2) this was a suit by organic farmers suing Monsanto to preclude them from suing farmers in the future for inadvertant infringement (i.e. wind based distribution) .3) As Monsanto hasn't brought such a suit, the organic farmers had no standing to sue. There was no controversy (farmers were asking the court to prevent Monsanto from doing something Monsanto wasn't doing).4) There is really no new or interesting law here, so of course the SCOTUS passed.I may hate Monsanto too, but Jesus, this is a serious non-story here
SquiggsIN: Blues_X: So, if their seeds are blown onto your property and germinate, they can sue you for not paying for them?Am I reading that right?Again DNRTA but, i've followed this issue and YES. If FarmerX doesn't buy from them and FarmerY buys from them and as FarmerY's harvest truck passes FarmerX's field and one seed contaminates FarmerX's field it's now FarmerX's fault he's growing their patented product and must either start paying them or end up going bankrupt fighting them in court.
SquiggsIN: Somaticasual: Dear Supreme court:Every time you rule in favor of a corporate concern over common sense, you undermine the very fabric of american justice. There is no upside, there is no sentence containing a saving grace here. You've just done an evil deed in the name of money - impure and simple.But, CORPORATIONS ARE PEOPLE! Think of the corporations! I'm 100% convinced at this point that everything from the DEA to the EPA is up for sale for the right price.
The Life Of Brian: Such a farce - WHY even claim there is 'democracy' any more.....(or a 'republic' as you Yanks like to say)Are they next going to patent the load I put in my sock tonight??Hope I don't spill any since that then could be used to make another me through cross contamination - and TRUST ME you do NOT want another ME!
walktoanarcade: Here's to hoping they fight that BS decision.
SquiggsIN: DNRTAI've kept up with most stories associated with agribusiness for a long time.Monsanto is one of the most evil companies on the planet.I don't know what has to happen to get more publicity on what is going on with our food system. We have fewer and fewer companies controlling more and more of our supply and their goals generally have profit above safety or fairness. Do we wait until every plant on the planet is patented? I think Monsanto would love to spread their GMOs to the point they can sue you for the crabgrass in your yards.
tlars699: highendmighty: This lawsuit brought to you by the makers of Agent Orange - destroying food for 3 generations.Seriously? I need links, to spread on the facebooks.
MechaPyx: True. I'd still like to burn Monsanto to the ground. Just sayin'.
Theaetetus: walktoanarcade: Here's to hoping they fight that BS decision.By appealing to what court?
