The 11th Festival of Pacific Arts will be held in the Solomon Islands in 2012. The unique cultures of the Pacific will be on public display at the Festival. Intellectual property rights and cultural protection are matters for the Festival organisers to manage. Elise Huffer of the Secretariat of the Pacific Community (SPC) requested World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) to undertake a scoping mission to report on the intellectual property and traditional cultural expression management relating to:
* Film, photography and sound recordings at the Festival
* The Media Accreditation and application process
* Performer’s contracts
* Options for trade marks and signage as well as warnings including regarding TK/TCE
* Any necessary IP or TK/TCE legislation and/or policies.
