Full Text:



This article tries to elaborate legal protection for the optimalisation of production and dissemination of sources and products of knowledge such as information, knowledge, biodiversity, genetic resources, traditional knowledge and folklore. This protection was aimed to create wider public access towards sources and products of essential knowledge particularly in the field of food, agriculture, health and education in order to ensure the living sustainability. The main issue in this article is to review the existence of exclusive rights and freedom of the contract and to elaborate the regime model of intellectual property rights and contract that is suitable to the Indonesia’s interests.
