Dear valued clients, colleagues and friends,
We are pleased to announce that our Partner and Head of the Intellectual Property Practice Group, Karen Abraham, will be speaking at a webinar titled “How to Protect and Promote Your Culture - Copyright” organised by the World Intellectual Property Organisation (WIPO) on 16 February 2022 (Wednesday) at 1:00PM - 2:30PM Geneva time (8:00PM - 9:30PM Malaysian time).
Inspired by the WIPO Traditional Knowledge Division’s publication Protect and Promote Your Culture — A Practical Guide to Intellectual Property for Indigenous Peoples and Local Communities, this webinar series is primarily addressed to indigenous peoples and local communities.
This webinar will be focusing on some of the main intellectual property tools that can be useful for them in the protection and promotion of their wealth of traditional knowledge and traditional cultural expressions.
Two members of indigenous peoples and local communities will also share their experiences with the copyright system, after which an intellectual property expert will explain key concepts linked to copyright, focusing on how they can be relevant to the particular needs of indigenous peoples and local communities.
