Intellectual Property: A Key Tool for Museums

Global Digital Encounters 27

In collaboration with EIPTN


Intellectual property is key to Museums: from IP rights attached to artworks to digitalization of works and merchandising, museums do operate within IP limits. The fast digitalization of collections, issues connected to museum websites’ development, and the entry of museums world in a closer relationship, for the good or for the bad, with business, makes the relationship between IP and Museums more complex and dynamic than ever. For this 27th Encounter, the FIDE/TIPSA Global Digital Encounters pool their forces with the European Intellectual Property Teachers’ Network (EIPTN), the largest such network in Europe, and in particular with its Working Group on Teaching IP in relation to Arts, Fashion, Culture and Creative Industries: EIPTN Academics from Europe will provide a worldwide picture of recent developments on IP and Museums, and the future of Museums thanks to a dynamic and yet careful use of IP tools.
