Abstract
This Ordinance, made under the Intellectual Property (Enabling Provisions) (Bailiwick of Guernsey) Law, 2004, concerns the definition, recognition and protection of plant breeders rights in Guernsey. "Plant breeders rights" are property rights which, upon registration under this Ordinance, subsist in varieties of all plant genera and species in accordance with this Ordinance. The Registrar of Intellectual Property ("the Registrar") shall establish and maintain a Register of Plant Breeder's Rights. Only the oversea registered proprietor of oversea plant breeders' rights may be registered as the proprietor of plant breeders' rights in the Register of Plant Breeders' Rights. A person wishing to be registered as the proprietor of plant breeders' rights in the Register of Plant Breeders' Rights shall apply in that behalf to the Registrar. The Ordinance defines rights given by registration in respect of protected varieties and in respect of dependent varieties.
The Ordinance also concerns, among other things legal proceedings regarding rights and harvested material, exceptions for farm saved seed, compulsory licences, Crown or States use of plant breeders rights, dispute resolution, inspection of plant material.
