Traditional Knowledge and Intellectual Property PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Traditional Knowledge and Intellectual Property free pdf This is the first comprehensive and practical legal text to examine the protection of, access to, and commercialisation of traditional knowledge, genetic resources and traditional cultural expressions. The topics covered include ownership, benefit-sharing, disclosure of origin, creation of intellectual property rights, coherence and consistency with international intellectual property regimes. The author considers also how these areas of knowledge are protected and understood in various jurisdictions and within different and sometimes competing legal frameworks. Taking an international and comparative approach, the book sets out the theory and practice with reference to key decisions, legislative responses, international discussions and resolutions, and other important documents. As well as primary materials (international and national), the coverage includes related influential materials from various stake-holders including industry groups, non-governmental organisations, and indigenous groups, all of which continue to inform the practical context in which these legal developments occur and are applied. Traditional knowledge is of interest to a broad range of disciplines and hence this book, for the first time, provides the reader with a book compatible to their needs. As it is emerging as a new and important practice area, this timely work fills a gap in the current existing literature.
