Court Agrees: DuPont Violated Contract With Monsanto On GMO Seed Development

January 16, 2010: 03:09 AM EST
DuPont did violate a contract by using Monsanto technology to develop its own genetically-modified seed resistant to the herbicide Roundup, a federal judge said, but that doesn’t rule out the possibility of legal challenges by DuPont against Monsanto on antitrust grounds. A Monsanto spokesman said the antitrust claims are a "smoke screen and effort to obscure the significance of the court's ruling on [DuPont’s] license violation." DuPont, however, said the antitrust battle was just beginning. Meanwhile, the U.S. Dept. of Justice is conducting its own probe of alleged anti-competitive activity in the seed industry.
