Story: Intellectual property law

Wai 262

Wai 262 was a Waitangi Tribunal claim about the recognition of rights around, and control of, traditional Māori knowledge, customs and relationships with the natural environment. Commonly known as the flora and fauna claim, it was first lodged in 1991 and became one of the tribunal's most complex and lengthy cases – the report was not released until 2011. This newsclip features Saana Murray, the only one of the original six claimants still living when the report was released.
