Michigan State Law ReviewIn 2001, the U.S. Supreme Court held that seeds were patentable subject matter. Protection of agricultural intellectual property through private ordering has provided the incentives necessary to promote investment and innovation in seeds. It has not been the patentability of seeds that has led to agricultural advances, but rather the profitability of licensing agricultural intellectual property.
Winston is an expert in intellectual property law, teaching Patent Law, Trademarks and Contracts.
She has several law review articles listed on her faculty webpage (see link above).
