ARISE+ IPR to celebrate local artisans’ culture and promote design rights in Cambodia and Lao PDR
Local artists, designers, and artisans have a great deal of potential to preserve their culture and wisdom, empowering their communities and boosting their industries’ economy using Intellectual property. In light of this, the EU-funded project ARISE+ IPR is producing a digital content package addressed to designers in rural areas, with the primary goal to help raise their awareness of intellectual property rights and industrial design rights, and highlight the economic and cultural value of their work.
The digital content package will be produced with input from the IP Offices in Cambodia and Lao PDR. The digital package will feature general knowledge on intellectual property rights, it will inform the designers on how intellectual property protection can benefit them in the long run, and provide them with information on methods of IP protection in their countries.
