IK is a broad term that covers a range of knowledge held and continually developed by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. Even though the word ‘traditional’ is often used to describe this concept, it's important to remember that IK continues to evolve.
If you want to learn more about IK, have a look at the video below.
We use the above definition to cover knowledge that could form part of an IP right. Indigenous Cultural and Intellectual Property (ICIP) is another term that's sometimes used interchangeably with IK. They're similar concepts but ICIP can have a broader scope.
Along with its personal and community value, IK can be a valuable asset and part of your business in many ways. If you want to work with IK, IP can offer some types of protection.
Check out our case studies for insights on how businesses are using the different elements of IP to commercialise their ideas.
