The Intangible Cultural Heritage (ICH) Law of the People’s Republic of China, passed by the standing committee of the National People’s Congress, will come into force on June 1.
This law is directed at the protection and appropriate development of ICH.
The law consists of six chapters and 45 articles. The law emphasises protection according to law, and prescribes that the cultural administration authorities of the state council should work out protection plans to protect the representative projects of national ICH. In its supplementary provisions, the law explicitly stipulates that where the use of ICH involves intellectual property, such use shall be governed by relevant intellectual property laws and regulations.
