Abstract

Technology advances and emerging innovations are a continuing challenge to legislation's adaptability. Yet no change has been as contentious as developments in the biotechnology industry. At the end of the 20th century, developments in genetics investigation raised the question of the patent system whether genetically modified living organisms are entitled or not to be patents. This paper examines the different aspects of seed patenting in India while compare it with the most recent amendments to the Patents Act, 1970 and the TRIPS Agreement. The author outlines further the opportunities for the future and the challenges of patenting seeds in India and whether they profit or are a burden for farmers. There are also some suggestions, purely by the author, that there are solutions to these problems.
