Re: Genetically engineered tomatoes

It's not that the companies are evil, it's that they happen to be in the same position as a lot of software companies, where the product they spent a lot of money developing, once made available, can be easily copied an infinite number of times by anyone.

Faced with the same issue back in the 1980's, software developers (especially for games) came out with all sorts of irritating anti-piracy software. The music and movie industries tried all sorts of other schemes, and often tried massive lawsuits against people who had pirated copies.
