Abstract:     
The World Intellectual Property Organization has been tasked with creating an international legal instrument to protect traditional knowledge. One of the more contentious issues in the traditional knowledge debate is the term of protection. This paper uses an “instrumentalist” approach to assess the benefit of a perpetual traditional knowledge right for developing countries and indigenous peoples.
