I wonder how Monsanto can protect itself against free use of its genes when they seem to be so careless about escape via pollen. If a neighbouring farmer "captured" the Bt or glyphosate tolerance genes, saved the seeds and sold them, would Monsanto really be in a good position to sue? I realize that is exactly what is going on with a canola farmer now -- the difference is that Monsanto is claiming that the seed came from them, whereas the farmer is saying the source is genetic contamination.
It would be a laughable farce if it weren't so serious...
