Organic Farmers Sue Monsanto Before Monsanto Sues Them
|Roundup-Ready corn -- what should happen when it volunteers on organic fields?|
The organic folks, organized partly by the Public Patent Foundation, hope to erect a sort of legal shield against the St. Louis-based agrochemical behemoth this time around.
If they succeed, Monsanto will not be able to sue them for patent infringement, should Monsanto-engineered crops sprout up unexpectedly in their organic fields.
Monsanto says they've pledged publicly not to do that, but Monsanto's critics don't trust it.
