What will I learn?

During this session, the speaker will analyze the impact on Plant Variety Rights protection for ‘harvested material’ of the recent CJEU decision in the Nadorcott mandarin case. The decision, which is to a great extent inspired by the UPOV Explanatory Notes on harvested material, is potentially dangerous as it suggests a limitative interpretation of what amounts to ‘unauthorized use’, particularly during the period of provisional protection. The speaker will discuss solutions going forward, both in terms of licensing, enforcement and advocacy.

The ciopora Academy testimonialS

“The CIOPORA workshop held in August 2019 in St. Charles/Chicago was a great opportunity to meet with companies active in asexually propagated plants and discuss common challenges in the protection of our crops. The topics were timely and relevant. The session on UPOV, Breeder’s Exemption, and U.S. Plant Patent Law was particularly interesting, as it provided real-life examples of the cross-border legal scenarios. Thanks to the CIOPORA team for always putting together a thoughtful and well-run program"

"CIOPORA Academy workshop was a great opportunity to learn varying perspectives on plant IP. All topics presented had value as they pertain to my daily work; however, I was particularly interested in the topics on Utility Patents and Plant Variety Protection (PVP) for asexually reproduced plants. Both speakers provided in-depth analysis of the different scope of protections under these two systems. The comfortable atmosphere of the workshops at the Hotel Baker was a wonderful location to network with like-minded colleagues."
