Title: Patentability of Plants: Technical and Legal Aspects
Authors: Parvin, Mohammad Reza
Keywords: Plants
breeder’s right
plant variety
hybrid plants
transgenic plants
Issue Date: May-2009
Publisher: CSIR
Abstract: According to Article 27.3(b) of the TRIPS Agreement, Members may exclude ‘plants’ from patentability, but they shall provide for the protection of ‘plant varieties’ either by patent or by an effective sui generis system or by any combination thereof. While this study focuses on the patentability of plants, alternative protection system (Breeder’s right as a sui generis system) has not been ignored. There may be some overlap between these protection systems which need careful consideration. In view of the importance of the decision of countries to protect plant varieties, the study also gives an overview and assesses possibilities of the current patent laws and legal positions adopted by jurisprudence or doctrine particularly in the field of transgenic and hybrid plants.
