Abstract [en]

Patent protection has become increasingly important for conventional plant breeding since the advent of biotechnology. This thesis covers the plant variety protection and patent protection as IP measures to protect developments in these areas. It also discusses the Tomato and Broccoli cases decided by the EPO Board of Appeal and the effects this had conventional breeding. In particular, the relationship between the Biotech Directive and the EPC will be discussed in order to show that there is a policy drift between them. Possibilities will be shown to resolve the drift.
