Travis Bliss, Ph.D., Counsel and Stephany Small, Ph.D., Patent Agent, both in the firm's Intellectual Property section presented on IP options for new plant varieties at the Cultivate ’19 conference in Columbus, OH. They discussed the three main types of IP protection that are available to protect novel plant cultivars (plant patents, utility patents, and PVP protection), the advantages and disadvantages of each, and how multiple types of IP protection can be used to build a strong picket fence of IP protection around a new cultivar.
