The question of how genetic resources ought to be owned and
controlled has become a controversial international political
issue. The authors examine this issue from a normative perspective,
discussing the four principles that govern the debate over genetic
resource control. These four principles are proprietarian
intellectual property rights (the dominant principle, reflecting
Western influences); communitarian intellectual property rights (a
principle bound up with the rights of indigenous peoples); national
sovereignty (the principle at the heart of international law); and
common heritage of mankind (the most recent principle reflecting
Third World demands).
