Community Resources : Intellectual Property, International Trade and Protection of Traditional Knowledge, Hardback Book

Community Resources : Intellectual Property, International Trade and Protection of Traditional Knowledge Hardback

Part of the Globalization and Law series

Description

Protection of traditional knowledge and resources is of critical concern not only to the groups involved but also to the international trading community for which these resources are of increasing economic importance.

This work examines the concept of 'community', intellectual property models and additional sources for protection at international law (including environmental and human rights frameworks). Intellectual property law is critiqued as an inadequate framework to address the fundamental object of protection for the communities themselves - the management of traditional use, as well as the biological and cultural sustainability of this use.

The work sets out an international framework based on the concept of 'community resources', recognizing the unique claims embodied in traditional knowledge, incorporating customary law, and facilitating community management of resources.

International in perspective and scope, the book will be a valuable resource for academics and researchers in law, international relations and cultural studies.
