Through contract a clear understanding of the sales and stock is made available by all licencees. In addition, all companies in the network of Future Plants are randomly checked. On site all plants or cuttings are counted and checked with the specified numbers.
Besides that, Future Plants visits many national and international exhibitions and conferences and checks all supplies and demands over the internet as well as stock- and inventory lists. To protect our breeders, all illegally propagated plant material will be sized and destroyed on site.
On violation of the plant breeder's rights, for example at illegal propagation or contract violation, Future Plants will act actively and efficiently.
Future Plants will - if a mutual solution proves to be impossible - take all necessary legal steps, if necessary in conjunction with a lawyer specialized in plant breeders' rights. Such steps may include in summoning the offender, seizure of plant material and/or business administration, destruction of plant material or going to court. If necessary, prior botany or DNA studies are done to be able to determine whether there actually has been an infringement.
Your plant breeders' rights are safe with Future Plants.
Future Plants has its own legal department. For more information please contact us.
