Asean group seeks more protection for 'traditional' IPRs

Asean group seeks more protection for 'traditional' IPRs
- “What we need to do is make people aware that we have a large trove of assets—like traditional medicines, bio resources, local products, handicraft, and even cultural resources like music —that can and should be protected by intellectual property laws,” said lawyer Aleli Angela Quirino, who heads the Asean IPA. In an interview, she said there were Philippine laws in place that were used to protect more conventional intellectual properties but more work should be done to inform the public that this protection could also be extended to non-traditional sectors like indigenous peoples.
