This story came round last week in the grain.org bio IPR news feed. (http://www.grain.org/bio%2Dipr/). The article includes some details of a new lawsuit against a farm co-op being accused of “seed piracy”. It also provides an interesting account of some of the now infamous enforcement efforts of Monsanto in the US.
