Monsanto, “RoundUp Ready” and the Biotech Directive in Europe.


The IPKat blog post “Monsanto try yet again” provides the latest on a long story involving alleged infringement through importation of soya meal into the UK.  “Monsanto, the proprietors of a European patent relating to … “RoundUp Ready” soya… were unable to show that what was imported actually fell within the scope of the patent claims they had been granted”.

The story will apparently continue as a referral has been made to the Court of Justice of the European Communities.  Visit the posting which has full references and links to relevant info (as have all the IPKat posts!)
