Some of the terms may be

Some of the terms may be invalid under that doctrine (alias "first sale"). But the important ones relate to growing additional generations of crops containing the genetic modifications. The first paragraph of the wikipedia article covers that explicitly:

the patent owner retains the right to exclude purchasers of the articles from making the patented invention anew, unless it is specifically authorized by the patentee.

IMHO Monsanto and the courts are 'way off base when they apply Monsanto's patents to people whose seed crops have been inadvertently contaminated, such as by pollen from a nearby field. (If anything, Monsanto should be the damaging, rather than the damaged, party. Especially if it's an organic grower who's not taking advantage of, say, a roundup resistance modification because he's not using glyphosate weed killers.) Maybe the Supremes will come up with something sane.

That means: For each job "created or saved" about five were destroyed.
