Suggested Read: The Quinoa Quarrel

fd3a8b3eb407b9b5ae49c830bcfaa67cI am a bit late to the table when it comes to reading this piece by Lisa M. Hamilton. Although the article focuses on the intellectual property rights associated with Quinoa, the legal implications of how this story eventually unfolds will have repercussions for the food and agriculture industry as a whole. There are few lawyers who have not been affronted with the phrase “possession is nine-tenths of the law” at least once during their careers. Despite the widespread misunderstandings surrounding the meaning and use of this, possession sometimes really is everything. I hope you enjoy this article as much as I did. Brilliant writing, beautiful photography, and a very intriguing exploration of a globally relevant food security issue.
