Plant Intellectual Property

The nursery and garden industry has the highest percentage of plant varieties protected by intellectual property rights both in Australia and overseas. In this nursery paper, Jay Sanderson and Kathryn Adams of the Australian Centre for Intellectual Property in Agriculture (ACIPA) introduce readers to the field of intellectual property. Some understanding of intellectual property is essential for all sectors of the nursery and garden industry including growers, wholesalers and retailers, who routinely deal with intellectual property protected plant varieties. Understanding intellectual property principles can not only help you to understand your rights and responsibilities but can also assist you in maximising your business opportunities. (TNP 2007#05)
