Organic Seed Alliance (OSA), Vermont Law School, and the National Center for Appropriate Technology (NCAT) will host a listening session to hear from farmers, seed growers, seed companies, plant breeders, and other food and farming stakeholders about issues they face with intellectual property rights (IPR) associated with seed. How does IPR impact your farming operation, plant breeding work, or research? What questions do you have? What resources do you need? What resources do you already have? Are there opportunities for improving how IPR is used in the seed system? Input gathered will directly inform future educational events and policy recommendations both at the administrative, regulatory, and legislative levels.
