Definition of patented

Categorized under "General"

Definition as written by paulgrow:

To obtain or grant a patent right to. No one else may reproduce or manfacture any item that has a patent on it.

Definition as written by Magpye:

This generally is a catalog referral phrase.
For the general gardener it may not be important but new plants, like inventions, can also be patented. This is a protection for the owner who created the \'new\' plant.

Definition as written by Terry:

Usually designated in the US as "PP" followed by a series of numbers which indicate the actual patent number. In the UK, patented plants are designated as PBR; in Canada, as CPBR.

Plants whose names are in the process of being patented are referred to as PPAF.
