UPOV plant protection convention to take root in Panama

While the choice of contrasting text size and colours for the title, subtitle and contents of WIPO media releases is welcome, the text is often uniformly dull and formal, sometimes to the extent that you can't easily see what it's all about. IP Tango readers should use their charm and talent to persuade WIPO to come up with something prettier, and more user-friendly.  Meanwhile, today's media release, pictured below so you can see what it looks and reads like, is good news for plant protection people:


UPOV Notification No. 114
International Convention for the Protection of New Varieties of Plants

Accession by the Republic of Panama to the 1991 Act

The Secretary-General of the International Union for the Protection of New Varieties of Plants (UPOV) presents his compliments and has the honor to notify the deposit by the Government of the Republic of Panama, on October 22, 2012, of its instrument of accession to the International Convention for the Protection of New Varieties of Plants of December 2, 1961, as revised at Geneva on November 10, 1972, on October 23, 1978, and on March 19, 1991.

The said International Convention as revised in 1991 will enter into force, with respect to the Republic of Panama, on November 22, 2012.
