TOPIC: Plant Variety Rights

The Plant Variety Rights Act 1987 provides for the grant of intellectual property rights called “plant variety rights” (PVRs). The Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment is currently reviewing the PVR regime to ensure that it remains fit for purpose and consistent with New Zealand’s obligations to Māori under the Treaty of Waitangi, as well as its international treaty obligations.

This session will provide an update on the MBIE review. In addition, there will be analysis and discussion of the High Court’s recent decision in Zespri Group Ltd v Gao & Ors [2020] NZHC 109, one of the few plant variety rights infringement cases to go to trial. The session will look at what the Court decided and the broader application of the case in terms of damages and overseas-based infringement.

 SPEAKER Helen Bellchambers, A J Park

Helen is a patent attorney and a lawyer. She leads AJ Park’s plant sciences team and supervises AJ Park’s plant variety protection practice of over 500 cases, covering more than 40 plant genera, filed in over 25 countries.
