Huelvan grower: One year in jail and ordered to destroy all plants

A Spanish grower has been sentenced to one year in jail by a Huelva judge for reproducing and multiplying cranberry varieties "Snowchaser" and "Ventura" without authorization. According to the judgment the commission of a crime against industrial property, as defined in article 274.4 of the Criminal Code, has been proven.

The convicted person, who carried out the nursery activity without being duly registered in the corresponding administrative records, had obtained plant material from the aforementioned varieties of unknown origin and proceeded to its reproduction and multiplication without the necessary license of the rights holders thereof.

The sentence, against which there is no recourse, condemns the producer to a sentence of one year in prison and forfeiture and destruction in charge of all the plants belonging to such varieties
