Hypocrisy and the Terminator

If you’re not reading Agricultural Biodiversity Weblog yet, you really should start. Luigi and Jeremy write about seed banks, traditional agriculture, and tasty native plants, just to name a few. And they post a lot.

I’m mentioning them now because of GURT big mess, posted by Jeremy. In this post, he says that activists who oppose biotechnology and oppose genetic restriction use technology (commonly known as Terminator) are hypocrites. It’s an interesting way of looking at things.

If you’d like to learn more about GURTs, see my post Gene Flow, IP, and the Terminator.
