What Is a Plant Patent?

A plant patent is for newly invented strains of asexually reproduced plants. To be patentable, the plant must have been asexually propagated. These are plants that reproduce by means other than from seeds, such as by the rooting of cuttings using layering, budding, grafting, or inarching. Not all countries allow the patenting of plants, but the USPTO issues a patent to anyone who has invented, discovered, or asexually reproduced a distinctly new kind of plant. This includes any cultigen, mutants species, hybrid species, and newly found seedlings not derived from a tuber-produced plant or a plant found in a wild state. Plants cultivated using tubers and wild or uncultivated plants are not patentable.  The term “"tuber"” means short, thickened under

Are you protecting the code itself, or are you protecting the software idea and the process? Getting a patent versus registering a copyright are very different processes and might also change what you want to do with your software.

Software counts as intellectual property (IP.) IP is an original work that isn't tangible, but that is valuable. Lots of avenues, including copyright and paten
