Will the Supreme Court finally wrestle the Monsanto monster to the ground?

Today Abby Martin interviews Bill Freese, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x7rVw1rskcQ 'science policy analyst at the Center for Food Safety, about the Supreme Court case between Monsanto and one Indiana farmer, and the implications this could have on international agro-business'...and even on every little farmer around the country like us on Higher Ground. (movetohigherground.yolasite.org) Why?...well because seeds patented by Monsanto are becoming the norm...and he who controls the seeds controls the feed. "While saving seed and even exchanging seed with other farmers for biodiversity purposes has been a traditional practice, these practices have become illegal for the many plant varieties are patented or otherwise owned by some entitiey (often a corportion)" (wikipedia)...seeds now considered intellectual property!
The monsanto 'monster' has grown large and powerful over these last 20 years but it's important to note that a shot placed just right can bring even giants to their knees! Let's hope the Supreme Court brings supreme justice to farmers across the United Corporations of America!
