Handicrafts and traditional arts play an important role in society. Peoples’ identification essentially depend on the art industry. Today, the use of cultural tools as a source of creativity has an important role in the development of traditional societies and result in the promotion of sustainable development. Undoubtedly, we must consider its economic role as the main source revenue and attraction for tourism. Unfortunately in recent years, due to inefficiency and lack of attention by the trustees, foreign countries have imitated and produced works of Iranian original art and imported them with lower prices and inferior ingredients into international and Iranian markets without considering the rights of the Iranian producers. This can cause damage to the country's economy and culture. Hence the legal protection of traditional arts in the form of intellectual property rights has many positive results for Iran. The role of the government, choosing the best system and solution to support this protection is effective in promoting these goals. This paper will survey and present the best system for the protection of Iran’s handicrafts.
