Monsanto Sues Farmers Again Or Not

July 14, 2011

Wednesday,  Monsanto filed a federal lawsuit in Pittsburgh against Harold Steve Wiser Jr and Harold V. Wiser, for violating a licensing agreement by replanting Roundup Ready seeds gleaned from crops the previous year.

Now, just a few hours after this story was released, a spokesperson for Monsanto, Sara Miller, is quoted as saying:

The filing was submitted by a third-party vendor and mistakenly included a claim for patent infringement and named Monsanto as the plaintiff.  The filing will be amended today.



 

Interesting.
