Our Culture: Our Future - a ground breaking report on
Australian Indigenous Cultural and Intellectual Property Rights is now
available online: http://www.icip.lawnet.com.au

The executive summary can be found at:
http://www.icip.lawnet.com.au/executive_summary.html

OVERVIEW

Indigenous Australians are concerned that their culture is currently
under threat. In an age of commercialisation, new technology and
increased globalisation, Indigenous people are concerned for the
ongoing
maintenance of their culture. Indigenous people seek better recognition
and protection of their Indigenous Cultural and Intellectual Property.

Our Culture: Our Future is the first of its kind to comprehensively map
the rights Indigenous Australians want to their cultural heritage and to
comprehensively analyse the laws and policies that affect the ability of
Indigenous Australians to realise these rights. The report also lists a
range of measures for protecting Indigenous Cultural and Intellectual
Property.

I encourage your early reading of the report, in particular the range of
recommendations appropriate to your area of work practice and
interest.

Your active interest in and support of this report is the first step
towards effective implementation of the practical reform proposals.
