Exclusivity and Royalties

I did an experiment with asking for a period of exclusivity and royalties for some clonal varieties for a little while, but I ultimately decided that it was a solution seeking a problem. It takes me a few years to make money on a new variety, so please take that into consideration if you are planning to reproduce and sell one of my varieties. I am in favor of people selling my varieties, because I don’t offer them indefinitely and it is nice to know that someone is keeping them going, but I would also rather not have to compete with you the year after I introduce a new variety.
