How should traditional culture be protected?
The term "traditional culture" refers to the unique characteristics that have developed over time in a nation's civilization, including folk literature, art, crafts, and customs. Although there is consensus in the international community regarding the need to protect traditional culture, there is ongoing debate over the most appropriate legal framework for doing so, particularly within the realm of intellectual property (IP). In practice, various legal tools, such as copyright, industrial property, unfair competition law, cultural heritage law, and special rights protection measures, are used to protect traditional culture. China, for example, has established the Intangible Cultural Heritage Law to safeguard its traditional culture.
