Abstract : The concept of Intellectual Property rights (IPR) is a very old one, dating as far back as the Ancient Greek times. The modern Patenting system is based on the "State of Sciences" of the middle of the 19th century, Its adaptation to the protection of living material is a current and crucial issue, debated in many fora. Provisions of CBD, International Treaty on PGRFA, etc. are, for some important aspects, not consistent with the UPOV Convention and the Patenting system. A revision of the Patenting system in accordance with the recent ethically-based position of the French Academy of Sciences could solve the problem but calls into question the appropriation of genetic resources.
