Nurul Barizah, Ph.D., a senior lecturer from Airlangga University, in February 2010, launched a book with a title "Intellectual Property Implications on Biological Resources" (ISBN:978-979-1436-23-6). The book analyses whether the choices made by the Indonesian Government in response to Indonesia's obligation under the TRIPs Agreement concerning biological resources are suitable for Indonesia in its current state of economic, social and cultural development, and national interest.
The book focuses on five lines of enquiry; (i) an investigation on current IPR policy in the field of biological resources from theoretical perspectives; (ii) an investigation of the development of international and regional legal frameworks relevant to the issues of IPR and biological resources, and their implementation in several national jurisdictions; (iii) an analysis of the Indonesian legal framework and policy direction for the protection of IPR and biological resources, including the questions of implementations and potentional implications; (iv) an investigation of the protection of IPR concerning genetic resources and related traditional knowledge from an Indonesian legal culture perspective; and (v) an identification of the appropriate and adequate legal policy and option for the protection of IPR on biological resources, including creating a fair, ethical and equitable biopartnership agreement.
