Chile Senate approves seed IP rights

The Chilean upper house of Parliament, the Senate, has approved a motion to impede farmers from saving and using seed without paying. It would extend the intellectual protection (IP) period to multinationals selling hybrid and genetically modified seed. The Senate voted by 13 to five in favour of Chile adhering to the international convention for the protection of new varieties of plants, the UPOV. Adoption by Chile of the convention requires the ratification of the President.
