Plant breeders' rights involve intellectual ownership rights that you can obtain as a breeder of a new plant species. If you have obtained plant breeders' rights others may not imitate the plant species without your permission. Breeders' rights protect new plant varieties. Such rights are assigned for a variety, not for a species, for example, peppers are a species and Habanero is a variety.
Breeders’ rights arise if a variety is distinct, uniform, stable and new. The variety must also have a name.
