The Right to Save Seed

A funny video about a not-so-funny issue. As described on the website, “The Right To Save Seed is an animated movie which explains when farmers can resow their seed in Europe. […] Even though farmers have made their own seed over centuries, they are not able to resow all the seed they buy, or can only resow it if certain conditions are met. Resowing is sometimes prevented by the seed sale contract, sometimes by the contract that ties them to the buyer of their crop, and sometimes by intellectual property rights.”
