Museums and IP “I.P., in particular copyright has always been considered inhibitive to museums ability to carry out their mission and mandate”… “However, if managed well, IP may hold the promise of sustaining cultural heritage programming for museums” – WIPO Guide, Managing I.P. for Museums by Rina Elster Pantalony, 2013
I.P. is at the core of all NGI activities Trademark/Logo/Brand Patents/Trade Secrets Domain names Copyright: Creators Users Licensors Assignees
The Challenges of working with © 23% of the art collection is in ©. 6.5% - orphan works Tracing Copyright and Legal Compliance Legal documentation and risk mitigation Intensive IP Management is essential to our operation. Problematic legal issues with copyright – see NGI submission to the Dept. of Enterprise, Jobs and Innovation http://www.djei.ie/science/ipr/National_Gallery_of_Ire land.pdf
Engaging with the “Experience Economy”, The Traditionalist Stance: “There is always the argument by scholars that museums should stick to their traditional objectives of preservation, collections access and scholarship and not to take part in the expectations of consumers in the experience society”….
