  • SPECIAL ISSUE: Patent Protection of Plant-Related Innovations - Facts and Issues
        This is a special issue of Bio-Science Law Review, which carries edited papers of the ISF International Seminar held in Copenhagen in 2006. The International Seed Federation represents the mainstream of seed trade and the plant breeding community in the world. It is a non-governmental, non-profit organization representing the seed industry. With members spread over 68 developed countries on all continents, ISF serves as an international forum where issues of interest to the seed industry are discussed. ISF promotes the establishment and protection of intellectual property rights for seeds, plant varieties and associated technologies, which follow from research investments in plant breeding plant biotechnology, seed technology and related subjects. It facilitates the marketing and of planting seeds and other reproductive materials by publishing rules for trading seed and licensing technology. These rules clarify and standardize contractual relations between buyers and sellers at the international level. The settlement of disputes is also provided for through mediation, conciliation and/or arbitration. Arbitrations Chambers exist in many ISF member countries.
