Monsanto, a company that manufactures genetically engineered seeds for agriculture that has sparked the ire of Neil Young, has issued a statement to Rolling Stone responding to the singer-songwriter’s mini-documentary Seeding Fear. Young co-executive-produced the film, which examines the repercussions of a lawsuit between the corporation and farmer Michael White, whom it sued for patent infringement. “Protecting patents and copyrights can be difficult in any business including the entertainment industry,” the rep continues. Young wrote in an introductory statement, “The film I would like you to see tells the story of a farming family in America, but the same thing is happening around the world.”
