Intellectual Property/International Law: Law Library of Congress Publishes Report on Māori Culture and Intellectual Property Law, by Jonathan Rusch

In December 2010, the Law Library of Congress published online a report by Kelly Buchanan, a Foreign Law Specialist with the Library of Congress, on Māori culture and intellectual property law. The report “discusses some of the issues and challenges in protecting cultural expressions and traditional knowledge in the law, and examines two examples of this in the context of the use of Māori cultural expressions. It also sets out the changes (or proposed changes) to New Zealand’s intellectual property legislation that seeks to enable Māori concerns and concepts to be taken into account through a consultative process.”

This post was originally published on the legacy ABA Section of Administrative Law and Regulatory Practice Notice and Comment blog, which merged with the Yale Journal on Regulation Notice and Comment blog in 2015.
