Indigenous Intellectual Property: A Handbook of Contemporary Research
(2015)
  • Matthew Rimmer, Australian National University College of Law
Abstract
In light of the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples 2007, this volume considers the international struggle to provide for proper and just protection of Indigenous intellectual property. Leading scholars consider legal and policy controversies over Indigenous knowledge in the fields of international law, copyright law, trademark law, patent law, trade secrets law, and cultural heritage. This collection examines national developments in Indigenous intellectual property in the United States, Canada, South Africa, the European Union, Australia, New Zealand, and Indonesia. As well as examining the historical origins of conflicts over Indigenous knowledge, the volume examines new challenges to Indigenous intellectual property from emerging developments in information technology, biotechnology, and climate change.
