Monsanto’s fraudulent tomato patent revoked by patent office

As Natural News readers know, there are many documents riddled with loopholes and laws that squeak by based on cleverly crafted words. The situation was no different in this case; it was ultimately determined that Monsanto was attempting to be wise wordsmiths, saying that their patent focused on conventionally bred tomatoes that had a natural resistance to botrytis, a fungal disease, and should therefore be considered as an intervention. However, the tomatoes for the patent were accessed from an area in Germany that already had the resistance to begin with; Monsanto was attempting to pull the wool over people’s eyes by indicating that their techniques were unique and, therefore, patent-worthy.
