Study on protection of traditional knowledge and traditional culture expression in India
Perpetual Protection can a possible characteristic of traditional knowledge. As well as the protection of useful historical communal cultural works, and protection of knowledge that is not considered to be inventive or creative according to the standards of intellectual property law. This is because this subject matter does not easily fit within the existing categories of intellectual property. Therefore, a Sui Generis regime could result in a new intangible property right that will exclude anyone other than the rights holders from making use of this intergenerational knowledge without consent.
The current system is based on an intellectual property model of the traditional knowledge right of some developing countries and traditional knowledge proponent’s support. It has the potential to produce problems not unlike those which have resulted under the current system. Thus, an international sui generis intellectual property right for traditional knowledge may hinder access to affordable knowledge goods, including for indigenous and local communities.
