Netherlands court strikes down Dutch grifter's patent claim over Ethiopia's ancient staple grain teff

Teff is one of the oldest grains to have been cultivated, a staple for so long that its original cultivation date is lost to history and can only be estimated at between 1000 and 4000 BCE; it is best known as the main ingredient in injera, the soft pancakes that are served with Ethiopian meals.

Or maybe it happened in 1949 with “Easy Living,” in which the film’s fictional football players roles were played by Rams such as Kenny Washington, Elroy “Crazylegs” Hirsch, and Fred Gehrke (who created the Rams’ horns logo). Regardless of the exact moment, Hollywo...
