India files biopiracy lawsuit against Monsanto, says biotech giant is stealing nature for corporate gain

However, a recent France 24 report explains that the Indian government has decided to take an offensive approach against this attempted agricultural takeover by suing Monsanto for “biopiracy,” accusing the company of stealing India’s indigenous plants in order to re-engineer them into patented varieties. http://www.naturalnews.com/033714_biopiracy_Monsanto.html
