Patent related to Umckaloabo (Pelargonium) challenged at EPO

Native South Africans are fighting the patent of Schwabe Pharmaceuticals related to a method of extraction from Umckaloabo, also known as Pelargonium. Not text from The Times: a team of South African lawyers and environmentalists launched the challenge at the European Union Patent Office headquarters in Munich, Germany, this week.

Recall the mess with the patent activities of the University of Hawaii on the taro plant.

Recall also the mess over the plant patent to yage.
