The Indian Arts and Crafts Board (IACB), an agency of the U.S. Department of the Interior, has released a new intellectual property rights protection brochure, created in collaboration with the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO), and entitled Introduction to Intellectual Property for American Indian and Alaskan Native Artists.

 

The brochure provides an introduction to the various intellectual property rights protections –trademarks, copyright, design patents, trade secrets – afforded to American Indian and Alaskan Native artists and artisans. Intellectual property protection is important to every business, including American Indian and Alaskan Native artists, and this brochure will help teach artists and artisans how they can protect their intellectual property, economic livelihood, and cultural heritage.

If you would like additional copies of the brochure, they can be obtained by calling the IACB toll free at 1-888-278-3253, or through email at iacb@ios.doi.gov. The brochure can also be viewed on the IACB’s website atwww.iacb.doi.gov.
