China Stakes Out Its Place in Plant Variety Protection
October 13

Note that the discussion around grace periods in the recording failed to mention relevant regulations regarding grace periods for plant varieties, notably Article 14 of the Plant Variety Regulations:

Article 14 Any plant variety in respect of which variety rights are granted shall have the characteristic of novelty. Novelty means that the propagating material of the new plant variety in respect of which variety rights are applied for has not been sold prior to the filing date of the application, or has not been for sale, with the consent of the breeder, for more than one year within the territory of China; the propagating material of vines, forest trees, fruit trees and ornamental plants must not have been for sale for more than six years, or the propagating material of other plant varieties for more than four years, in a foreign territory.

As always please consult counsel for specific legal advice.
