This is a reflection of the bullshit nature of patents in general. Monsanto is far from the only entity abusing patent laws. This is a direct consequence of government intervention and a failure of misguided commerce laws.
So what to do the progressives want to do? More government laws! It seems to me that many people here just want to get revenge on Monsanto. "Hey let's get revenge on Monsanto by writing a poorly conceived bill to give the government sweeping power over ambiguous food labeling! That will teach them! Bigger government is the solution! It doesn't matter how many innocent producers are screwed over by new regulations, all that matters is that we get a small revenge against Monsanto!"
