Plant Variety Rights

Plant variety rights play an important role in the context of industrialized agriculture. This area of law supports research and development of new varieties which are, among other things, necessary to feed the earth’s growing population and for overcoming the challenges of climate change. Plant variety rights close the protection gap in patent law for plants which, as organisms, would otherwise be ineligible for patenting.
