Cultural Heritage Institutions, Copyright and Cultural Diversity
In recognition of the important role of cultural heritage institutions in making culture available and accessible, Cultivate.4 will address the relationship between copyright law and cultural heritage institutions in the context of the protection and promotion of cultural diversity. This project will examine how copyright contributes to innovation and creativity in the context of European cultural diversity and in relation to the accessibility of the cultural heritage of Indonesia both in Dutch cultural heritage institutions and in Indonesia.
