These collaborative efforts often make breeders', developers', or discoverers' rights indistinct since rights to seek protection may reside with two or more institutions or agencies. Plant variety protection probably would not be sought for many of such cooperatively produced plant varieties; most would be released immediately under procedures established by the Director of the Experiment Station in consultation with collaborating agencies. The Director would maintain a record of all such decisions. However, if, in the public interest, plant variety protection is sought, it will be done jointly. (If one of the institutions or agencies is the United States Department of Agriculture —Agricultural Research Service, the procedure will be subject to its present policy which permits protection to be obtained but prohibits collection of royalties.) For crop varieties resulting from research and testing by University scientists at the Agricultural Experiment Station in which breeders', developers', and discoverers' rights can be clearly established, a protection certificate of a variety may be sought under the Act for the purpose of a. prevention of unethical use of valuable genetic material, or b. assuring the necessary market examination, promotion and development so as to obtain wide distribution in the public interest of seed of a potentially valuable variety to users and growers so as to "insure an adequate supply of fiber, food, or feed in this country."

Subsequent protection may then involve licensing on an exclusive or nonexclusive basis and charging of royalties then may be necessary.

Accordingly, in the light of the special circumstances indicated above, the Chancellor at the Urbana-Champaign campus has recommended that the Board of Trustees authorize the Director of the Agricultural Experiment Station, acting

with the advice of a Plant Variety Review Committee,1 to:

1. determine whether or not "protection" of breeders', developers', or discoverers' rights will be sought by the University under Public Law 91-577 (the Plant Variety Protection Act) for new plant varieties discovered at the University of Illinois under circumstances in which the University has rights therein;

2. when appropriate, apply for a plant variety protection certificate in the name of the University of Illinois; and

3. make recommendation to the Chancellor at Urbana concerning the granting of licenses for use of such varieties and the amount of royalty, if any, to be charged.

The Chancellor will submit the recommendation, together with his own recommendations, to the President of the University. If he concurs, the President will transmit such recommendations to the Board of Trustees for final action.

The issuance of licenses and the collection of royalties will be processed and administered through established University business channels.

The Vice President for Planning and Allocation concurs in the recommendation as presented.

I recommend approval.

On motion of Mr. Swain, this recommendation was approved.

RECOMMENDED LICENSING A N D ROYALTIES RELATING

T O REDLAND RED CLOVER. URBANA

(14) The Director of the Agricultural Experiment Station has advised the Chancellor at the Urbana-Champaign campus that in the event that the policy for plant variety protection proposed in the preceding agenda item receives Board approval, he will act to apply for a plant variety protection certificate on a red clover variety known as "Redland." The variety was developed by Dr. Carl N.

Hittle, Professor of Plant Breeding (Agronomy).

To be appointed by the Chancellor or his designee upon recommendation of the Director.

1973] UNIVERSITY OF ILLINOIS 389 While the Plant Variety Review Committee provided in the policy statement is yet to be established, for some time the Director has had the advice of a similar body, which_ has now indicated to him that the potential market for red clover seed is relatively small and that the seed industry would be reluctant to promote the sale of a new variety of the crop if the variety is released to the public.

Consequently, the Director has recommended that the Comptroller and the Secretary be empowered to enter into an exclusive licensing agreement with the Rudy-Patrick Seed Company of Kansas City, Missouri, the only seed company which has expressed interest in reproducing and marketing this variety of clover, for the sale of seed_ of the Redland variety. The Director further recommends that such exclusive license be granted for a royalty equal to the University's costs of certification and any related additional charges incurred by the University in perfecting the certification. The Rudy-Patrick Company is to assume all costs of policing and infringement proceedings which may be necessary.

The Chancellor at Urbana concurs with these recommendations.

I recommend approval.

O n motion of M r. Swain, this recommendation was approved.

CONTRACT FOR REPAIR T O CONDENSATE LINES, MEDICAL CENTER

(15) The President of the University, with the concurrence of appropriate administrative officers, recommends award of a contract in the amount of $16,890 to The Nu-Way Contracting Corp., Chicago, the low bidder, for work to repair the underground condensate lines on Wolcott Avenue at the Medical Center campus.





Funds for this work are available in the Medical Center Steam Plant Revolving Account.

CONTRACT FOR RESURFACING T H E ROOF O F T H E VIVARIUM

BUILDING. URBANA (16) The President of the University, with the concurrence of appropriate administrative officers, recommends award of a contract in the amount of $50,786 to Petry Roofing and Sheet Metal Co., Champaign, the low bidder, for resurfacing the roof, plus replacement of downspouts and gutters and other miscellaneous roof work of the Vivarium building at the Urbana campus.

SELECTION O F SECONDARY DEPOSITARIES FOR MEDICAL SERVICE

PLAN. ROCKFORD SCHOOL O F MEDICINE

(17) The Vice President for Planning and Allocation has recommended the selection of Durand State Bank, Durand, Illinois and the Citizens Bank of Mt.

Morris, Mt. Morris, Illinois, as secondary depositaries for Medical Service Plan receipts from Community Health Centers recently established in Durand and Mt. Morris, Illinois, by the Rockf ord School of Medicine.

Funds deposited in the above-mentioned banks will be transferred to the American National Bank and Trust Co. of Rockford. The accumulated funds in the American National Bank and Trust Co; of Rockford will be transferred periodically to the University account at the First National Bank of Chicago.
