A new Protocol and a sheepish lion
Last night Afro Leo was prowling around in search of a copy of the Swakopmund Protocol on the Protection of Traditional Knowledge and Expressions of Folklore. He has now received links to the Draft Protocol and the draft implementing regulations, thanks to the thoughtfully efficient Denise Nicholson (University of the Witwatersrand).
This rather sheepish lion confesses that it never even occurred to him to look for the Protocol on the ARIPO website, since so many of his previous visits to it have ended in abject failure -- but it was working most effectively five minutes ago, a big improvement!
