Legislator Tania Pariona told Sputnik News that “we have presented an initiative of law for the protection of the knowledge and design of indigenous iconographies, as well as cultural expressions to avoid that they are taken by third parties for commercial purposes”.
The parliamentarian maintains that her project, called the Law that Constitutes the Regime of Protection, Recognition and Promotion of Traditional Knowledge of Indigenous Peoples in Peru (Ley que Constituye el Régimen de Protección, Reconocimiento y Promoción de los Conocimientos Tradicionales de los Pueblos Indígenas en el Perú), focuses on two objectives.
The first is that “there exists a mechanism for the recognition of the collective knowledge of an original people”; and second, the one that contemplates ” economic retribution in favor of the natives” when some third party makes use of its cultural or artistic patrimony.
