In my view, intellectual property in general has serious problems. Cultural appropriation overall is, to me, idiotic. Cultures aren’t owned in the first place and they’re certainly not passed along through gene lines or families. Trying to implement the idea through legal sanctions has serious implications for stifling cultural innovation and harassing individuals. (A case can be made for boycotting folks who are, say, being bigots, but that’s another matter and really not a legal sanction but personal exercise of choice of who to associate and trade with.)
