[Autom. eng. transl.] As with brands and designs, even for new plant varieties it is possible to obtain an effective patent throughout the European Union, pursuant to reg. 2100/94 / EC. The article examines this right, inter alia, illustrating the requirements necessary for obtaining protection and the exceptions to the breeder's right. The study also focuses on the regulation of the variety denomination by analyzing the relative regulations of the Regulation in the light of the directives of the Community Plant Variety Office (CPVO) and finally, starting from the considerations expressed by the Court of Justice in case C-377/98, identifies in the compulsory license the connection point between the varietal patent and the invention patent.
