Monsanto Won Battle against Indian Farmer

Indian farmer lost in a patent dispute over a genetically modified soybean seed to Monsanto. It was not a good day to the farming community. In my opinion, farmers need to be cautious using Monsanto crops; you don’t want to fight with giant Chemical Corporation.

Excerpt:

A unanimous Supreme Court ruled Monday that an Indiana farmer infringed on Monsanto’s patent when he planted soybeans that had been genetically modified by Monsanto without buying them from the agribusiness giant.

In the decision, written by Justice Elena Kagan, the nine justices ruled that “patent exhaustion does not permit a farmer to reproduce patented seeds through planting and harvesting without the patent holder’s permission.”
