      It is essential that intergovernmental negotiations address the creation of a mandatory funding mechanism to recognize, reward and protect the contributions of local communities, farmers and indigenous people of all nations.
    • Intellectual property rights: Key to access or entry barrier for developing countries 

      Solleiro, Jose Luis (NABC, 1994)
      Implementation of an innovation-system approach is critical to facilitate the adaptation and assimilation of biotechnology developed in other countries. Protection of IPR will play an important role creating a safe climate ...
    • Access: Bartering and brokering genetic resources 

      Shands, Henry L. (NABC, 1994)
      If there is to be financial compensation for notable genes making contributions to new varieties or hybrids, developing countries may have to pay for that value when in the past, improved germplasm has been available at no cost.
    • Farmer's rights: What is fair?

    • The impact of patents on plant breeding using biotechnology 

      Day, Peter R. (NABC, 1994)
      No matter what new gene a crop cultivar contains, unless its genetic background supports good agronomic performance it will be of no practical interest to growers and farmers. For this reason, a major part of the application ...
    • Modem production agriculture

      Intellectual property rights play a central role in identity-preserved systems because they allow rights holders to reduce investment risk, preserve the identity, and control the use of value-added factors. Production ...
    • Gene ownership versus access: Meeting the needs 

      Tribble, Jack L. (NABC, 1994)
      The continued expansion of biomedical science and the discovery and development of unique highly specific therapeutics will depend on the availability of Research Tools to the academic, governmental and commercial research ...
    • Recent progress in gene isolation and gene mapping: implications for agricultural biotechnology 

      Flavell, Richard B. (NABC, 1994)
      Advances in gene technology are driving plant and animal improvement into a new era which may bring with it argument, economic change and some social chaos. Industry will change, as will the role of research in public ...

      Merrigan, Kathleen A. (NABC, 1994)
      The U.S. system of intellectual property rights (IPR) may not make sense as it pertains to plants
    • Access to intellectual property in biotechnology: constraints on the research enterprise 

      Sederoff, Ronald; Meagher, Laura (NABC, 1994)
      Intellectual property rights (IPR) in biotechnology have a negative effect on the progress of non-profit research. Patent policy and law intend to facilitate research progress, but the current practice has led to barriers, ...
