You've got to love the Haitians, burning and returning a "gift" of genetically modified seed from Monsanto.

I like it too - because the people doing it have next to nothing. Haiti's environment has been savaged by colonial deforestation, top soil loss, and habitat destruction. But still they have the spirit to turn down this "gift".

Monsanto just one a big intellectual property rights case at SCOTUS

Monsanto court victory could have big impact on biotech
(http://www.cnn.com/2013/05/13/politics/supreme-court-biotech/index.html)Washington (CNN) -- The Supreme Court ruled for agribusiness giant Monsanto on Monday in a patent case that could have an enormous impact on a variety of biotech fields.

The justices unanimously found the world's largest seed producer has intellectual property control over its best-selling "Roundup Ready" soybeans. That means the product cannot be reproduced without paying the company a fee.
Products like genetically engineered seeds and live vaccines have been hailed as scientific and industrial breakthroughs, but they often can be reproduced easily and cheaply.
Monsanto sued an Indiana farmer, Vernon Hugh Bowman, claiming he violated a farming agreement when he used genetic copies of the company's soybean product without paying a "technology fee."
