Indigenous Knowledge:

Issues for protection and management

In 2017, Terri Janke and Company was commissioned by IP Australia to develop a series of papers exploring key issues for the protection and management of Indigenous Knowledge in Australia. 

This main paper explores the relationship between tradition-based knowledge of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and issues of intellectual property, cultural heritage and economic empowerment.

We also wrote two Supplementary Papers:

Supplementary Paper 1:

An overview of the Australian laws that are currently used to recognise and protect Indigenous Knowledge

 

 

 

Supplementary Paper 2:

International Laws and Developments relating to Indigenous Knowledge in Australia

 

A snapshot of international instruments that Australia is a member to or is involved with across intellectual property, environment, human rights, cultural heritage and trade, shedding light on the discussions around Indigenous Knowledge protection and management.
