New Book Puts WIPO Traditional Knowledge Committee In Perspective

A new book with contributions from key thinkers on the subject details the long history and intensive negotiations of the World Intellectual Property Organization committee on genetic resources, traditional knowledge and folklore, making a case for conclusion of binding international agreements in these areas as a way to close important gaps in intellectual property policy.
The book, “Protecting Traditional Knowledge: The WIPO Intergovernmental Committee on Intellectual Property and Genetic Resources, Traditional Knowledge and Folklore,” published by Routledge, claims to be the first comprehensive review of the committee since it was established in 2000.
The editors are: Daniel F. Robinson, research fellow at the International Centre for Trade and Sustainable Development (ICTSD) and associate professor in Environmental Studies at the University of New South Wales, Australia; Ahmed Abdel-Latif, special assistant for policy and programme in the Office of the Director General at the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA), Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates; and Pedro Roffe, senior associate in Innovation, Technology and Intellectual Property at ICTSD.
이 협상의 역사를 아는 사람이라면 이 책을 읽으면서 그 고통도 함께 느낄 수 있으리.
