to Monsanto for genetically altering plants so they
cannot reproduce (so-called "Terminator Technology").
The end result is that Monsanto will be able to market
genetically altered seeds that have a superior crop yield
but cannot be copied. But there are dangers that
these "sterile" plants could in fact pollinate neighboring crops."
To bad nature isn't under the GPL.
