MONSANTO ACCUSED OF FRAUD AND BIOPIRACY IN FILING FOR PATENT ON TOMATO.

In fact, the tomato came from a public gene bank in Germany. “’Because crossing tomatoes is not patentable, Monsanto deliberately rephrased the patent during the period of examination to make it appear as if genetic engineering was involved. However, careful reading of the patent shows that this is simply fraudulent. These tomatoes were not produced by transferring isolated DNA. The European Patent Office should have picked up on this,’ says Christoph Then for No Patents on Seeds!.” Jim
