I can see where they are coming from with the way they ruled on it. This is practically the same with software. You cant buy the software and then copy it and sell it.
They looked at this as a narrow issue and I think they got it correct in that regard: that you cant buy something and then copy it for profit. The problem though is that software doesnt spread by itself when the wind catches it and spreads its pollen around.
I think that, however, things are being looked at far too narrowly. They shouldnt rule in their favor if the pollen drifts on to someone elses field, thats like saying you have to charge someone because you splattered paint on them.
To climb the mountain, you must believe you can.
