Guam - Since first meeting last year, the Guam Trademark Commission reconvened this morning. Oversight on Cultural Affairs Speaker Judi Won Pat says the biggest threat to our culture and traditional arts is the mass production of items and souvenirs claiming to be cultural, authentic, Chamorro or traditional.

"This commission is responsible for both the development of both a trademark and intellectual property rights act and a cultural trademark statured for the protection and preservation of Guam's Chamorro cultural arts," she stated, adding, "we do have a lot of work to do."

Discussion today focused on timelines and subcommittees and creating a cultural trademark and IP rights for the upcoming Festival of Pacific Arts taking place on Guam next year.
