aaah yes. You want your children to have immunity to the antibiotic resistant bacteria that halve everyone's lifespan if they don't have PharmaDNAUpgradePack2? Pay us 5% of their estimated lifetime income.

@pinkprius Ew, gross! Why do idiot facists think they can own information?

@pinkprius ...anybody knows the name of this plant?
I love plants! ...also my girlfriend, my parents, my sisters & brothers, my best friends, my neighbours, my colleagues, the unkwon woman in the underground train, the children running in the street, ......

@pinkprius I was going to suggest that it may be patented in the case of it being a genetically modified organism (GMO), but I also don't really know much about US Plant Patent Laws...

@pinkprius *police banging on my door* "POLICE, OPEN UP! WE KNOW YOU LET THAT PLANT REPRODUCE!"
me, holding one of its siblings in my paw: you'll never take me alive

@pinkprius
I thought this was going for a joke about asexuality instead of justified outrage about intellectual property laws, but I'll take it. :D

@pinkprius @wolf that clearly means you can propagate it with cuttings so CUTTINGS EVERYWHERE.

@ElectricAsherah @pinkprius @wolf That sounds like one of the most rebellious uses of guerilla gardening ever. Go for it!

@pinkprius
True confessions of a yogurt pirate...
Remember when Dannon touted their patent yogurts! You better believe I was getting small cups as starters cultures and making my clones a liter at a shot!
Take a slip of that plant and grow, grow grow. To borrow from an old film, "the seeds are sacred because of the life locked within them, the earth because it is all we have to stand on."

@pinkprius

I don't really do *houseplants* myself, but if you need advice on how to make Free/Libre plants, ask anyway, please.

@pinkprius
I don't know what would be better: to make the plant reproduce everywhere just in spite, or to burn that abomination (in the legal sense).

@pinkprius you know what you have to do now…

don't they know of the Streisand effect?

@pinkprius Just wait until patented pets become a thing.

@pinkprius
When having potted plants becomes outlawed, only outlaws will have potted plants.

Using this kind of legal tactics will only result in more and more people violating the law, until it becomes meaningless.
