Panama to be bound to IP seed rights

Panama has “deposited its instrument of accession” to the international convention for the protection of new varieties of plants, the UPOV. The country was already among the 70 members of the convention, and the latest move binds it to the 1991 Act of the UPOV. Panama becomes the 50th country to be bound on November 22nd, a month after the deposit of its instrument of accession, the UPOV says. The convention aims to extend intellectual property rights to seed suppliers and developers, and impede farmers from saving and using seed without paying.
