Dear list members,
At the WIPO Permanent Committee of 10 September 1997 it was announced
that WIPO is looking into the possibility of establishing a sui generis
right for the protection of expressions of folklore.
In April 1997 WIPO and UNESCO organised a worldwide Forum on Folklore to
discuss the legal means of protection of folklore in national law,
economic exploitation of these rights and international protection.
A WIPO Committee of Experts has been established and a Committee meeting
will be held in September/October 1997.
It was stressed that in a digital context expressions of folklore can be
used more easily and needs therefore appropriate protection.
