Date: 03/21/14

Description: The second annual Cherry Blossom Symposium will focus on the intersection of intellectual property law and federal policy relating to "traditional knowledge." Topics of discussion will include: (1) initiatives to regulate commercial appropriation of names, symbols, and modes of cultural production associated with traditional and indigenous communities; (2) progress in the efforts of the WIPO Intergovernmental Committee on Intellectual Property and Genetic Resources, Traditional Knowledge and Folklore to establish international norms; (3) the intersection of protection for genetic resources and research governance, and (4) non-traditional solutions to IPR- related problems affecting traditional knowledge and its custodians.
