[nafex] Patent Rights/Royalties

Someone recently queried me if it was a patent violation if someone 
exchanged scion wood that was patented if no fee was charged by the

violation, but I am not a professional nursery person.

I also believe I've read that the first generation progency of 
patented varieties may fall under patent protection - is this also
