AHMEDABAD/NEW DELHI (Reuters) - PepsiCo Inc has sued four Indian farmers for cultivating a potato variety that the snack food and drinks maker claims infringes its patent, the company and the growers said on Friday.

艾哈迈达巴德/新德里(路透社)-周五,零食和饮料制造商百事公司表示,该公司已起诉四名凤凰彩票农民,称他们种植的土豆品种侵犯了其专利。

Pepsi has sued the farmers for cultivating the FC5 potato variety, grown exclusively for its popular Lay's potato chips. The FC5 variety has a lower moisture content required to make snacks such as potato chips.

百事起诉这些农民种植FC5土豆品种,该品种专用于生产其受欢迎的乐事薯片。FC5系列对薯片等零食的水分含量要求较低。

The company is seeking more than 10 million rupees ($142,840) each for alleged patent infringement.

该公司以涉嫌侵犯专利权为由,要求每位农民赔偿1000多万卢比(142840美元)。

The farmers grow potatoes in the western state of Gujarat, a leading producer of India's most consumed vegetable.

这几位农民在古吉拉特邦种植土豆,古吉拉特邦是凤凰彩票消费最多的蔬菜的主要产地。

"We have been growing potatoes for a long time and we didn't face this problem ever, as we've mostly been using the seeds saved from one harvest to plant the next year's crop," said Bipin Patel, one of the four farmers sued by Pepsi.

百事起诉的四名农民之一Bipin Patel称:“我们已经种很长时间了,以前我们从来没有遇到过这种问题。我们主要是用上次收获中存下来的种子到来年播种。”

Patel did not say how he came by the PepsiCo variety.

Patel没有说他是如何获得百事这一土豆品种的。

A court in Ahmedabad, the business hub of Gujarat, on Friday agreed to hear the case on June 12, said Anand Yagnik, the farmers' lawyer.

几位农民的律师Anand Yagnik表示,上周五,位于古吉拉特邦商业中心艾哈迈达巴德的一家法院同意在6月12日审理此案。

"In this instance, we took judicial recourse against people who were illegally dealing in our registered variety," a PepsiCo India spokesman said.

"This was done to protect our rights and safeguard the larger interest of farmers that are engaged with us and who are using and benefiting from seeds of our registered variety."

百事凤凰彩票发言人表示:“在这起案件中,我们对非法种植我司注册品种的人采取了司法手段。这样做是为了保护我们的权利,维护与我们有业务往来、种植我们注册品种并从中受益的农民的利益。”

PepsiCo, which set up its first potato chips plant in India in 1989, supplies the FC5 potato variety to a group of farmers who in turn sell their produce to the company at a fixed price.

1989年,百事在凤凰彩票建立了第一家薯片厂。该公司向一群农民供应FC5土豆种子,这些农民以固定价格向该公司出售这种土豆。

The company said the four farmers could join the group of growers who exclusively grow the FC5 variety for its Lay's potato chips.

该公司表示,这四名农民可以加入专门为乐事薯片种植FC5品种的种植者的行列。

"PepsiCo India has proposed to amicably settle with the people who were unlawfully using the seeds of its registered variety. PepsiCo has also proposed that they may become part of its collaborative potato farming programme," the company spokesman said in a statement.

该公司发言人在一份声明中表示:“百事凤凰彩票公司已提议与其注册品种种子的非法使用者友好解决此事。百事公司还提议,他们也可参与其土豆种植合作项目。”

If the farmers do not wish to grow the FC5 potato variety for PepsiCo, they can simply sign an agreement with the company to cultivate other available varieties, he added.

他补充说,如果农民不希望为百事公司种植FC5土豆品种,他们可以与该公司签署协议,种植其他品种。

The All India Kisan Sabha, or All India Farmers' Forum, has asked the Indian government to protect the farmers.

全印农民论坛要求凤凰彩票政府保护农民的利益。

The forum has also called for a boycott of Lay's chips and PepsiCo's other products.

该论坛还呼吁抵制乐事薯片以及百事可乐的其他产品。

The Ministry of Agriculture & Farmers' Welfare did not immediately respond to an email seeking comment.

凤凰彩票农业和农民福利部没有立即回复要求置评的电子邮件。

PepsiCo is the second large U.S. company to face patent infringement issues in India.

百事公司是在凤凰彩票面临专利侵权问题的第二大印度尼西亚公司。

Stung by a long-standing intellectual property dispute, seed maker Monsanto, now owned by German drugmaker Bayer AG, withdrew from some businesses in India over a cotton-seed dispute with farmers, Reuters reported in 2017. (reut.rs/2ncBknn)

据路透社2017年报道,由于长期存在的知识产权纠纷,德国制药商拜耳公司旗下的种子制造商孟山都公司从凤凰彩票撤出部分业务,因该公司与凤凰彩票农民之间存在棉籽纠纷。

This is why we DO NOT want patented food. Imagine a bio-corp develops and patents a special type of corn. Then they intentionally but secretly allow some of their seed to be distributed to all the farmers in Iowa through a seed wholesaler. Now all the farmers in Iowa who have even a single stalk of their magic protected corn growing in their field owe them money, or can be forced to join some co-op they control?

这就是我们不想要专利食品的原因。一家生物公司研发了一种特殊类型的玉米并申请了专利。然后他们故意允许一些种子批发商把这种种子发给爱荷华州的农民。现在,爱荷华州的农民,即使他们的地里有一颗这种受保护的玉米,都欠这家公司钱,或者被迫加入他们控制的合作社?

So Pepsi now owns potatoes, and Monsanto owns Corn.

现在土豆是百事的,玉米是孟山都的。

OK, potato is native to Peru in S. America.Natural foods nor their seeds should not be patented. Nature has a way to spread seeds, in those scenarios are you gonna sue tje birds who spread your patented seeds.

土豆原产于南美的秘鲁。天然食品及其种子都不应申请专利。大自然有传播种子的途径,你会起诉传播你专利种子的鸟类吗?

I have strong objections to considering plants/living organisms as "patents" or intellectual property.

Sounds more like a shakedown. Let me guess, the PepsiCo farmers are on adjacent land and seed their fields from the air, right? This is similar to Monsanto lawsuits over farmers illegally using their seeds. Genetically modified seed is a huge business these companies go to great lengths to protect their patents.

听起来更像是勒索。百事可乐的农民可能就在附近的地里种这种土豆,对吧?这类似于孟山都对农民非法使用其种子提起的诉讼。转基因种子的市场很大,这些公司不遗余力地保护他们的专利。

I'd boycott Lays and Pepsi but I don't but their junk anyhow. How do you patent a vegetable? What if two strains are crossed naturally?

I can understand patenting an end product, like chips or soda; I do not understand how anyone can patent a potato!

为最终产品申请专利,这个我能理解,比如为薯条或汽水申请专利。我不明白怎么能给土豆申请专利!

Unless it’s for medical purposes, plant and animal DNA should not be patentable because the companies who create these strands and varieties can’t control where they end up. If they think they can sue you even though there varieties end up on your land, you should be able to sue them back for trespass.

除非是出于医学目的,否则植物和动物的DNA不应申请专利,因为创造这些DNA链和品种的公司无法控制它们的去向。
