Biotechnological inventions. Biotechnological inventions refer to techniques that use living organisms, or parts of them, in order to make or modify products, or to improve or modify certain or all the characteristics of plants, or animals, in order to develop micro-organisms, and organisms intended for specific uses.

The techniques use or cause organic changes in biological material, or. However, increased patenting of biotechnological inventions has led to litigation related to patent infringement issues.

The patent litigation is only likely to increase in future considering the overlapping of patent claims, the high value of products, problem of prior publication and the fact that many companies are pursuing the same product.

European Union has already overtaken the United States Inthe European Union promulgated Directive 98/44/EG on the Legal Protection of Biotechnological Inventions (the Directive) to ascertain that biotechnology inventions receive adequate patent protection.

Patenting biotechnological inventions Proteins and nucleic acids The patentability of proteins and DNA/RNA is assessed by the Patent Offices in the same way as any other chemical entities. If they are claimed in isolated or purified form, then that form will be novel over the forms that are present in the organism from which they are obtained.

The law regarding biotech inventions in Europe has largely been delineated through evolving case laws and EU Directives. The EU Directive on Biotechnological Inventions [2], adopted inrecognizes only limited situations wherein biotech inventions are not eligible for patent rights.
