Professor Jorge Contreras will be interviewed by the Bloomberg Surveillance show regarding the Supreme Court case, Bowman v. Monsanto. The interview will be aired on

The issue in Bowman, according to SCOTUS, is whether the Federal Circuit erred by (1) refusing to find patent exhaustion – a doctrine which eliminates the right to control or prohibit the use of an invention after an authorized sale – in patented seeds that were sold for planting; and (2) creating an exception to the doctrine of patent exhaustion for self-replicating technologies.
