The Public and Private Domains: Intellectual Property Rights in Traditional Knowledge.
Dutfield, Graham
Science Communication, v21 n3 p274-95 Mar 2000
Defines traditional knowledge and its uses and argues that intellectual property law contains an in-built bias that protects the intangible assets of companies while failing to recognize traditional knowledge as protectable subject matter. Discusses the globalization of intellectual property rights and the unjust situation for indigenous people. (Contains 53 references.) (Author/LRW)
