Victoria at the Club: The Propertisation of Mānuka

Victoria at the Club: The Propertisation of Mānuka

Victoria at the Club with Dr Jessica Lai

There is a growing body of literature proclaiming and decrying the appropriation and propertisation of Indigenous knowledge and resources. Yet, there is little empirical research measuring the scale of any such appropriation or propertisation. This talk presents the results of an empirical search for patents pertaining to Mānuka (Leptospermum scoparium) filed internationally and through the Intellectual Property Office of New Zealand (IPONZ).

Dr Jessica Lai researches in intellectual property, especially patent law and the protection of traditional knowledge. She has published numerous articles, chapters, books and edited books in these fields, and is the author of Indigenous Cultural Heritage and Intellectual Property Rights (Springer 2014) and co-author of Patent Law and Policy (with Susy Frankel, LexisNexis 2016). Jessica is the General Secretary of the Asian Pacific Copyright Association.
