Sad, my prediction is that monsanto will win, a precedent will be set and the end of free seeds will be closer than ever. They know not what they do!

I don't understand why Monsanto sued him instead of the dealer selling him the seed. Their case would have been much stronger against the dealer. Unless they did both and this is the case that is getting some traction. Good for the Supreme Court for picking it up. Hopefully it will get some publicity.

I believe Monsanto will come out on top because it is all about money. BUT, I am keeping my fingers crossed for the farmer.

Paul asks that this be a read/info only thread. Feel free to carry the topic over to a discussion thread.
