Abstract: Indigenous knowledge (IK) is a subject of inquiry in several disciplines.It is discussed in legal contexts in terms of regimes for its protection (e.g.Antons 2010), or as a form of intellectual property (e.g. Curci 2010). IK isalso considered in many writings, within the framework of international legal treaties such as the United Nations Convention on Biological Diversity (Biber-Klemm and Cottier 2006, McManis 2007). Some writers have taken a morecritical approach to the use of the Intellectual Property Rights (IPR) regime as a basis for considering IKs (eg Anderson 2009, Gibson 2005, Brown 2005, Oguamanam 2008, Davis 2006, Agrawal 1995).
