A patented soybean seed is produced and sold by Monsanto that is genetically altered to resist its “RoundUp” herbicide.
Farmer Vernon Bowman purchased soybean for planting from a grain elevator.
Bowman argued that Monsanto's sale of its seed that he had purchased from the grain elevator exhausted any patent rights in the seed.
The District Court and the Federal Circuit both had rejected the argument but later Supreme Court agreed to review the case.
