Product Overview

Neemix is a natural biopesticide developed by W. R. Grace from the neem tree, which is indigenous to rural India. Because of its medicinal and religious use by rural Indians for more than 1,000 years, the Foundation on Economic Trends is protesting Grace's patenting of Neemix. The A case raises questions concerning international intellectual-property rights and how American companies such as Grace should deal with these issues. See also the B case (UVA-E-0158).
