I would say that the clause is not in 100% operation and would be void, ab initio.
Why? Because you can only contract out of contractual liability and not general liability, there is no power for that and you can't consent to absolving the other party 100%.
This will only work if you believe it.
I have helped people overcome contract clauses such as this.
Plus, if you weren't aware of this when you signed the deal, then you didn't give knowing and willing assent to that term/condition which renders that void.
Contract law is a fascinating area of law to study and play with.

This company has got to go. It's not right. It has become something it never should have become. One cannot patent life, not plants, nor animals. not dna, not genes. NO NO. End of discussion.

The irony of GM crops is the huge bank of heirloom seeds at Svalbard which is up above the Arctic circle. They are holding and saving as many varieties of old seeds as they can get their hands on, including a very recent delivery of Peruvian potatoes, for the future should there be a catastrophic event. Or in anticipation of one they think is coming.

Preserving heirloom seeds at the same time as they work at an increased pace to force GM on all the farmers of the world.

I have spoken to many people about these topics who shrug it off and start talking about...what they are having for dinner or repairing the car. What do we do when the majority of people canʻt seem to hear?

There is an interesting bit of info that I read a few years ago at about the same time the Svalbard seed bank info was released. It was a short article that the US was going to the Moon to leave undisclosed artifacts and items there for a future retrieval -- as I recall. It was also close to the time when B&K did the Norwegian politicians interview. I wondered if they had an undersea tunnel from the Norwegian mainland to the island.

Anyone else remember that?

Dennis

They have to be stopped totally.

The same creators of agent orange http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Agent_Orange come out with genetically modified seeds that shows no real advantage, lock farmers into ultra dependency, sue them non-stop all over the world and stay safe being protected behind legislation that reward the monsters and punishes the human being.

While research and studies warns us about the danger to turn sterile after a few generation if GMF is being absorb by mammals. http://saynsumthn.wordpress.com/2010/06/07/study-genetically-modified-foods-cause-sterility-eugenics/

We have to eliminate GM Food and GM Seeds from our world, completely.

We recognize a tree by its fruits. Monsanto is a monster.

Thanks for the thread.

Namaste, Steven

Well, well, well.
Greedy corporations taking all the rewards and dumping their liabilities on the little guy.
What a surprise.
So tell me, what else is new?

We must shift our focus on to how we will defeat these monsters.
My suggestion: The only way to win is not to play.
