Freedom for seeds!

NO PATENTS ON SEEDS! on 11 March 2021 handed over a new report on patent applications for conventionally bred plants to the German Ministry of Justice in Berlin. The organisation calls on the German Minister of Justice, Christine Lambrecht, to take measures against the patenting of plants and animals - as announced in the coalition agreement. The report provides an overview of patent applications on conventionally bred plants that were published in 2020, and which could be granted by the European Patent Office (EPO) in the next few years.
