This important Research Handbook offers a comprehensive analysis of the intersections between intellectual property (IP) and cultural heritage law. It explores and compares how both have evolved and sometimes converged over time, how they increased tremendously in significance, as well as in economic value, despite the fact that the former mainly pertains to the private sphere, whilst the latter is considered a ‘common good’.

More Information
This important Research Handbook offers a comprehensive analysis of the intersections between intellectual property (IP) and cultural heritage law. It explores and compares how both have evolved and sometimes converged over time, how they increased tremendously in significance, as well as in economic value, despite the fact that the former mainly pertains to the private sphere, whilst the latter is considered a ‘common good’.

Featuring an excellent combination of contributions from leading experts, chapters offer insights into relevant cutting-edge issues that still remain unsettled. Divided into three main parts, it focuses on how IP can work as a tool for cultural heritage protection and, in particular, intangible cultural heritage, and discusses the politics and policies in this area, including whether such protection is fit for purpose. The final section explores special issues of intersection between the two, making it relevant to cultural heritage institutions such as museums, galleries, auction houses, libraries, and platforms, including issues of cultural heritage and IP management.

Encompassing the latest developments and debates in the area, this Research Handbook will be key reading for academics, postgraduate students, and researchers in the fields of cultural heritage and art law, cultural heritage management, and intellectual property law. It will also be relevant for practitioners, policymakers, cultural heritage institutions, and content platforms.
Critical Acclaim
‘In this Research Handbook on Intellectual Property and Cultural Heritage, Irini Stamatoudi puts together a tremendous group of high-level scholars to explore from various angles the complex but fascinating relationship between intellectual property and cultural heritage. The result is an extremely rich and inspiring set of contributions covering various aspects of the protection of cultural heritage by different IP rights, the politics and policies behind it, as well as the specific challenges and issues faced by cultural institutions in this process.’
– Christophe Geiger, University of Strasbourg, France

‘An invaluable collection of essays which explores the multiple ways the law may help build a bridge between our shared past and our futures, digital or otherwise.’
– Marco Ricolfi, University of Turin and NEXA Center for Internet and Society, Italy
