In: The Breeder's Exception to Patent Rights


  • Viola Prifti

    (Max Planck Institute for Innovation and Competition)


This chapter presents the major findings of this study. It illustrates to what extent article 30 allows the impairment of patent rights and to what degree societal concerns may be relevant for interpreting article 30. Additionally, it indicates the role of national case law and legislation in shaping the rationale of exceptions and the interpretation of article 30, and it points to the importance of economic reasoning and empirical studies in assessing the compliance of the breeding exception. Finally, suggestions for adopting an exception to patent rights with breeding purposes are put forward.
