The class action lawsuit you refer to is because farmers were growing non-GMO corn in neighboring fields that had viable pollen and those fields would pollenate the GMO corn making the seed viable.
I was under the impression that the gmo corn was pollenating the organic corn thus redering it no longer organic. Also when that happens monsanto would trespass onto the farmers fields to get samples to use in court.
A couple of years ago I watched documentery that went into detail about what monsanto was doing. It was on hulu and the name escapes me at this minute. If somebody knows the name of the film please help me.
