Other environmental considerations call for less intensive use of pesticides, fertiliser and other chemicals, while at the same time maintaining and increasing food production to cope with the demands of the European and global markets. This multifaceted challenge can only be met by creating new varieties of crops that use fewer resources while enhancing productivity of European agriculture. And given the climate change is already happening, these new varieties must also be able to cope with the changing climate. A great deal of innovation in breeding of plant varieties is therefore required. Such innovation is underpinned by the Community Plant Variety Rights (CPVR) on the EU level, managed by the Community Plant Variety Office (CPVO). This report, a joint publication of the EUIPO and the CPVO, highlights the very significant contributions made by the CPVR system to the economy and to the environment during the past 25 years, thereby supporting the EU’s economic and environmental goals....Less

Piracy is now almost exclusively a digital crime, although some illicit TV steaming services still use physical shops to attract subscribers....Less
