No Patents On Seeds

Opposition against European Patent EP 2373154 B1

Opposition is filed against the patent as a whole. Revocation of the whole patent and if necessary a public hearing of the opposition is requested.

Reasons for opposition:
1. The patent violates Art. 53(b) EPC, and more specifically, the prohibition on patenting essentially biological processes for breeding.
2. Further, the patent is not inventive and therefore violates Art. 52 (1) in combination with Art. 56.
