Italian breeders get jail time and a fine for propagating breed-protected variety

Eight months' imprisonment and €20,000 fine for illegally propagating tomato plants of a breed-protected variety.

Plantum is bringing the lawsuit to the attention of the public on its website. According to the industry association, it is the second ruling of its kind in Italy.
