You can do an online patent search to discover who holds a patent, and their
I had little luck in contacting the patent holder for Titania blackcurrant.
He had no idea how to handle a single individual, or establish a straight
forward royalty fee.
I just wanted to propagate a couple more bushes (for myself) from the single
plant I had purchased from a nursery. Having read all the NAFEX posts on
patents I thought I would try to honor the patent.
Possibly he was the exception. In my limited experience, patent holders are
interested in the large producers, not the individual propagating for their
own limited, personal use. I think we are more of a bother than we are
worth to them.
I am not saying to abuse a patent, just stating the realities I ran into.

Someone inquiring about permission to propagate the patented Pixie Crunch
could ask if a standing agreement could be struck so any NAFEX member can
see where to send how much money for each propagation. Put it on a new
webpage. It sounds like multiple people want to propagate this sweet apple;
why can't one do it once and get an agreement for all?
