Date:4/30/2008

n growing a particular variety for over 100 years will not wake up one day to discover that their traditional crops have suddenly become someone elses intellectual property, said Victoria Henson-Apollonio, Manager of the CGIAR Central Advisory Service on Intellectual Property (CAS-IP), the CGIAR office charged with assisting the Centers on matters of IP.

CIATs patent challenge is part of the CGIARs ongoing effort to ensure that intellectual property claims regarding plant materials do not falsely seek to privatize materials already in widespread use. The challenge was endorsed by the FAO and the Genetic Resource Policy Committee of the CGIAR.
