- Wright, Robin; Kenyon, Andrew T.; Christie, Andrew F.
- Digital communications technology is dramatically affecting the management and consumption of cultural heritage material. The digital reproduction and dissemination of material held in public collections offers the promise of far wider access, greater audience interaction and innovative uses of cultural material. However, it also brings potential problems related to copyright law and possible conflicts with the economic and creative activities of the creators and copyright owners whose work is held in public collections. This report outlines views and understandings found from research into the sector in Australia.
