Biodiversity and traditional knowledge are of particular interest to Spoor & Fisher patent specialist Tertia Beharie – and on 26 July 2016 she participated in a Classic FM panel discussion focusing on “The Protection, Promotion, Development and Management of Indigenous Knowledge Systems Bill”. Amongst other matters, Tertia outlined the definition of indigenous knowledge in the context of the Bill, and the significance of indigenous cultural expression as a form of IP.
