La propriété intellectuelle dans les biotechnologies agricoles : quels enjeux pour quelles perspectives ?

Listed author(s):
  • Michel Trommetter

Within the framework of agricultural biotechnologies, there was an evolution of the intellectual property rights: the implementation of the patents on living organism, the evolution of the legislation on the Plant breeder’s right from the Union for the Protection of plant varieties, or the implementation of intellectual property rights at a world level within the framework of Trips agreements (Article 27/3 B.) of WTO. In this context of evolutionary intellectual property rights, the markets of the agricultural genetic resources are based on goods and services related to the management of agro biodiversity. The markets related to the genetic resources will depend on the way in which the actors will jointly reach: technologies; biological and genetic material; information and knowledge as well on the material as on technologies; agricultural markets that it is on a local, national, regional or world level. This is why in this paper we will analyze, whatever the statute of the genetic resources is, the conditions of access to the biological materials, the innovations and the markets and their consequences on the activities of research and development in the field of agricultural biotechnologies.
