Word Cloud: Guatemala’s Now-Repealed Plant Variety Rights Law

Guatemala PVP Treaty_Sep 5 2014

On September 4, 2014, the Guatemalan Congress decided to repeal its newly-minted (like, really newly minted – it was just 3 months old) Plant Variety Rights Law, which aimed to streamline the country’s seed-protection laws more in line with the 1991 Act of the International Convention for the Protection of Plant Varieties (the UPOV Convention).

For more information on the process that led to first the signing, and then the repealing of the Plant Variety Rights Law, see this informative post by Sullivan Law.
