Draft Report on Traditional Knowledge
31 August 2000
The World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) is inviting public comment on a comprehensive study, the first of its kind, on the intellectual property-related needs of holders of traditional knowledge (TK). The report is based on hundreds of interviews conducted by WIPO during nine fact-finding missions in almost all regions of the world in 1998 and 1999.
Instructions for how you can comment on the draft, and a link to the draft are available here.
The closing date for comments is 30 October 2000, after which the report will be finalised for consideration by WIPO's 175 member states and other interested parties.
