AIS: Registrations


<<But, one could disagree.  Intellectual property rights get created in many 
ways, and the market often has a method of regulating chaos>>

I see the registration process not as a means of creating intellectual 
property rights per se, but as an activity that AIS as a good citizen in the 
international scientific  community undertakes specifically to prevent chaos.

That is, in accord with the appropriate International Codes of Nomenclature a 
new and utterly unique botanical entity ( the iris being registered) is 
named, formally described, recorded, and its existence is published to the 
interested world. The names must be unique and remain so because the plants 
are unique, and that is not something we need to let 'the market' muck about 
with.
