Cultural districts and the role of intellectual property (disctinctive signs)
Authors: Florence Rojal / Anno:
The goal of this presentation is to explore possible ways of using the IP system for the protection, development and commercialization of a country’s culture-based assets, given the alternative forms of protection that are currently available both at the national and international level. It is focus on industrial cultural districts producing material goods. In other words I will essentially consider the case of localized districts made up of small firms producing culture-based goods, which have been essentially created for commercial purposes.
