ABSTRACT
Traditional knowledge is a source of knowledge, which is unprotected by Intellectual Property Rights and often freely available within the public domain. At present World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) is unable to satisfactorily protect traditional knowledge from patenting. The World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) failed to recognize the rights of traditional knowledge holders adequately. As regards protection of knowledge, innovations and practices associated with biological resources, these do not seem to meet the conditions required for grant of patents or other intellectual property rights (eg. copyrights, trademarks etc) under prevalent intellectual property regime, i.e., novelty, inventiveness and industrial applicability.
