Yoga Piracy is a fact. A fact given and prooved by the Indian Govenment. Steps against this piracy are already on the move and are on a very large scale.
To curb this pillage of our heritage, the Indian government has initiated a move to document 1,500 yoga postures - from Patanjali to the present times - and store them in a Digital Traditional Knowledge Library. This data will then be made available to patent offices worldwide. --Holy Ganga 14:27, 17 December 2005 (UTC)
- surprised that wikipedia doesn't have much on patent piracy of traditional knowledge systems.. even patent has just a link and no detail.--Pranathi 22:29, 18 December 2005 (UTC)
Has there been any talk about making such a database available online? Not just to Patent offices?
I feel this should be labelled as a Cultural misappropriation. The fact remains, companies and the Western civilization seems to have thrived borrowing/stealing ideas and practices from other cultures without giving proper due credit. The fact that Yoga asunas were not patented by India prior to this is irrelevant, it's still incorrect. I will find the source if I can at a later date, but some German groups are even now claiming that they invented many of the Yoga asunas/practices, sheer and utter blasphemy.
