What will I learn? This webinar will provide green sector players with practical guidance and essential knowledge about the plant IP framework, outlining the benefits of IP protection for the entire value chain and the common pitfalls.


Syllabus: The value chain for the development and commercial exploitation of new varieties of IP rights includes a vast number and variety of stakeholders, each and all of which engage in an industry of floriculture and agriculture that is, at the same time, both hi-tech and traditional. While breeders may have a clear idea of what they can and cannot do, the other stakeholders – from nurseries to department stores, passing through growers, intermediates, and gross marketers – are not always fully aware of the protections provided by national law and international conventions with respect to a Plant Variety Protection (PVP) and, conversely and contemporaneously, of the risks they take if they fail to take account of the broader system of Plant Variety Rights (PVR) in their business activities. Indeed, limiting the discussion of IP related to new varieties exclusively to PVR matters would be incorrect, because trademarks, copyrights and unfair competition are also paramount considerations in a proper analysis and development both of the plant variety right framework and the exploitation of the same in commerce.
