Correctly Decided

Our constitution and laws apply equally to everyone; including POS companies like Monsanto. If you read the opinion of the court and the lower courts they all conclude the same thing. There is literally no question Mr. Bowman violated the patent.

If the law stinks it is not the job of the Supreme Court to change it; it is the job of Congress. Patents are an important part of liberty. They allow someone to be creative and be rewarded for their efforts. The defenders of liberty have to be bold and defend the worst of the worst sometimes. Such is the case here. Afterall, imagine a scenario where Mr. Bowman invented the bean and Monsanto said they could reproduce it and sell it without paying Mr. Bowman...not as evil sounding that way.
