The Protection of New Plant Breeds


  • Constantin Anechitoae

    () (Faculty of Law „Ovidius” University of Constanta)


New plant breeds created or discovered or developed by a person, may be protected in terms of industrial property law, only by requesting / granting a plant breed patent. In these circumstances, the owner of the plant breed patent - breeder acquires an exclusive right of exploitation, throughout the entire period of the breed protection, and he also has the right to prohibit to any other person to perform without his authorization acts on breeding, production, sale or resale or any other form of marketing, importation or exportation or storage for one of these purposes. The protection under the plant breed patent of a protected breed, whose plant breed patent holder may be any legal entity or natural person, has direct effects on a financial plan, by reducing the innovation costs and by boosting the research and innovation activities for research institutions, companies and inventors in this field.
