Clean Seed Capital (TSXV: CSX) Files Worldwide Patent Application Expanding IP Portfolio
April 11, 2017 - Vancouver, British Columbia - Clean Seed Capital Group Ltd. (“Clean Seed” or the “Company”) (TSX-V: CSX) has submitted an additional worldwide patent application under the Patent Cooperation Treaty (PCT). This new patent application contains several new proprietary technologies developed by our research and development team to continue the rapid expansion and advancement of our technology portfolio. Once successful, the granted patents will further broaden the protection of the Company’s diverse technologies, while also extending the life of the patent protection for its existing SMART Seeder™ and SMART Planter™ technologies by three years. All activities related to the PCT are coordinated by the World Intellectual Property Organization.
Graeme Lempriere, Chief Executive Officer of Clean Seed, states “Filing an international application under the PCT has the same effect as filing a national patent application in each member country where an applicant desires patent protection. Our original Smart Seeder patents are advancing to issuance without conflict and we are confident that this additional application will successfully broaden our protection and extend the patent life of our Smart Seeder. We remain committed to ongoing technology development to advance our Company’s technological advantages and to continue to position Clean Seed as leaders in the smart agriculture movement.”
