It is worth mentioning that the introduction of genetically modified genes into the farmers crop by natural pollinators was not accidental but clearly intentional. I know of no commercial farmers who grow their own seed; but this farmer thought he could snag the patented gene by planting a non-GMO soybean adjacent to a neighbor's GMO soybean and capturing the genes from the pollen. As horrendous as this court decision seems, it would not have gone that way if the intent were not there.

Seems to me it should be Monsanto's responsibility to keep "their" genes out of other peoples fields, if they can't do that, oh well.
