Copyright, Heritage, and Australian Aboriginal Art

Copyright, Heritage, and Australian Aboriginal Art

A very interesting and very pertinent read: Given the changes that have recently taken place within the digital realm and ideas about open sourcing and legitimate copyright claims this paper’s critical look at the laws governing such issues is remarkable. There are sections that deal with a diversity of issues such as European appropriation and reinstitution of art and the idea of original creativity and ownership. There are further references made to parallel cases before the courts in Canada and the United States. In the end, the summary is grim. An unfortunate picture is painted about the rights of Indigenous people to their cultural artwork and the legal discourse surrounding the issue.
