This Act covers more items,such as protection criteria,maintenance of registers,right contents,duration of protection,exceptions and limitations,benefit sharing,management of rights,sanctions and remedies,etc. This law can be used for reference in many countries including China. At present,China is lack of special laws to protect traditional knowledge and expressions of folklore.
