Three options for protecting your new plant cultivar – which are best for you?

Thursday, May 14, 2020, 1:00 p.m. EST

Travis W. Bliss, Ph.D., Partner and Stephany G. Small, Ph.D., Life Sciences Patent Agent, Panitch Schwarze Belisario & Nadel LLP

Over the past two years, breeders of asexually reproduced plant varieties have gone from essentially a single option for protecting their novel varieties to three options: plant patents, utility patents, and plant variety protection (PVP) certificates. This presentation will explore each of those types of protection, the advantages and disadvantages of each, and when one might want to select one over the other. It will also discuss how one can use multiple types of intellectual property protection to “build a stronger fence” around your novel varieties. What you’ll learn: • Basics of plant patents, utility patents, and PVP protection, including how to obtain them, what they can be used to protect, and the scope/strength of protection they provide • The pros and cons of each form of protection • How to use multiple forms of IP protection to build a stronger IP fence around your novel plant variety
