Agriculture Companies and Groups Speak Out Against the Innovation Act

Some of the biggest names in agriculture, including Monsanto, DuPont, and Eli Lilly, have sent a letter to both the Senate and House Committees on Judiciary expressing their concerns about the Innovation Act. The letter states that the Act, as currently drafted, will "discourage investment in modern agricultural tools important to rural America by making patent rights more difficult to enforce and more challenging for companies and university to cross-license agricultural technologies."
