This is nuts. If its true than i'm going to tell my son to go to Canada instead of Iraq when he's deployed, which will be soon.

According to this the Iraqi's have to destroy their own seed and buy US seed to grow their crops. It's disgusting if you ask me.

Anyone else heard about this?

L. Paul Bremer has been out of Iraq for something like a year now, I doubt this is a true story.

I started the following thread last weekend but nobody came......

The story may be a year old but is one that I had not seen discussed anywhere else. L. Paul Bremer may have been gone a while now but this is one of the measures that was introduced under the CPA on his watch.

I hope its not true. I'm going to go dig a little further and see if it is.

This is not nuts. This is simple patent rights. A compnay produces a product, here its genetically modified seeds, they sell it under a contract of limited use. Therefore, you have to pay a licsense to re-use the seeds, and are breaking the law if you don't.

Indeed, this has been going on in iraq for quite some time now. I think this is the third thread in ATS alone over the course of three months or so one the topic.

Yes, this is just to protect patented crop varieties. The same regulations exist in most countries.
