Item description for Indigenous Heritage and Intellectual Property: Genetic Resources, Traditional Knowledge, and Folklore by Anja Von Hahn...

Intellectual Property Law For indigenous cultures, their genetic resources and traditional resources in the broad sense belong to them. Yet the market-driven industries of the developed world do not hesitate to exploit indigenous "raw" materials, from melodies to plants, using intellectual property law to protect derivatives thereof. Existing intellectual property law, for the most part, allows industries to use indigenous knowledge and resources without asking for consent and without sharing the benefits of such exploitation with the indigenous people themselves. It should surprise nobody that indigenous people object. Recognizing that the commercial exploitation of indigenous knowledge and resources takes place in the midst of a genuine and significant "clash of cultures," the eight contributors to this important book explore ways in which intellectual property law can expand to accommodate the rights of indigenous people to their traditional knowledge, genetic resources, indigenous names and designations, and folklore. In so doing they touch upon such fundamental issues and concepts as the following: collective rights to the living heritage; relevant human rights norms; bioprospecting and biopiracy; benefit-sharing in biological resources; farmers' rights; the practical needs of documentation, assistance, and advice; the role of customary law; and public domain. As a starting point toward mutual understanding and a common basis for communication between Western-style industries and indigenous communities, Indigenous Heritage and Intellectual Property is of immeasurable value. It offers not only an indepth evaluation of what has been achieved so far in this direction - including analyses of the Convention on Biological Diversity and other international instruments, as well as initiatives of the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO), the UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), and other international bodies - but also probes numerous further possibilities. While no one concerned with human rights or environmental issues can afford to ignore it, this book is also of special significance to practitioners and policymakers in intellectual property law.
