Title: Copyright Laws as a Means of Extending Protection to Expressions of Folklore
Authors: Dwivedi, Anurag

Issue Date: Jul-2005
Publisher: CSIR
Abstract: One of the great ironies for indigenous people and local communities is that while scientific and commercial interest in their ecological knowledge and resource management practices have never been greater, human cultural diversity is eroding at an accelerating rate as the world steadily becomes more biologically and culturally uniform. With the advent of globalization, cultural heritages of different countries have become more vulnerable to those of the rest of the world. Folklore is one such heritage for the indigenous people of one country. Intellectual property rights are meant to protect diverse heritages. This paper attempts to analyse the existing copyright laws with a view to determining their potential to extend protection to these vulnerable rights.
