    Pretty much all countries have patent laws by this time, and countries can always produce generics for drugs that are off patent, just like we do.  And it seems like all the good drugs are already off patent.  From what I hear the pharmaceutical industry hasn't come up with anything more interesting than the latest copy of Viagra or heartburn medication in years.  That's where the money is.

    Not sure what the agreement would have to do with seeds, but I imagine farmers can keep using the same seeds they've been using for hundreds of years.  Monsanto can't own that.

    Cynicism is what passes for insight among the mediocre.
