"Integrate rather than segregate." Permaculture Principle
At Ludwig Lawyers, we believe in collaboration rather than competition. These days, patents seem to be granted to every Tom, Dick and Harry for all kinds of so-called "inventions" that border on the ridiculous. It would be worthwhile to have a proper public examination of the unexamined assumption that patents encourage innovation. The best inventions were not made with monetary gain in mind. The IT sector was first to recognise the value of sharing. We we are big fans of Elon Musk, the CEO of Tesla Motors, who decided to make Tesla's patented inventions available to the public. To save the planet, actions need to be taken fast, innovations need to be open to be further developed as quickly as possible. Let's consider that patents may be a hindrance to this.
At Ludwig Lawyers, we strongly object to patents being granted on genetic material, the origin of life. We follow the Permaculture Ethics "Care for the Earth, Care for People, Fair Share", and therefore, we do not act for companies that seek patents/ownership over any genetic material.
Plant Breeders Rights
At Ludwig Lawyers, we believe that plant varieties should be in the public domain, and we therefore do not act for anyone seeking to have a plant breeders rights granted over a new plant variety.
