The CIPPIC/CGRC Proposal: An Open Licensing Scheme for Traditional Knowledge

Proposal: An Open Licensing Scheme for Traditional Knowledge

This is an interesting resource put forward in 2016 by Carleton University Geomatics and Cartographic Research Centre & The Canadian Internet Policy and Public Interest Clinic. A good summary of some of the issues around Indigenous Knowledge and the intersection of “western notions of  IP” and First Nations principles of OCAP. Proposes a licensing scheme based on the Creative Commons Model, but adds layers such as community consent and reciprocity.
