Art and culture in the digitized world: A legal perspective

Legal Accelerators, inDICEs and Cluj Cultural Centre joined forces to co-organise the online panel on Art and culture in the digitized world: A legal perspective that took place on March 10th at 14:00 CET / 15:00 EET and was addressed to representatives of all GLAM institutions (Galleries, Libraries, Archives and Museums) who wanted to learn more about licensing and acquisition and the copyright implications of digitization.

The online event featured the participation of intellectual property law scholars Francisco Duque Lima (LL.M.), scholar and researcher at the KU Leuven Centre for IT&IP Law, and Bert Demarsin (dr.), head of the Art, Law & Management Research Programme. Both engaged in a discussion on the legal aspects that professionals in the art trade and cultural heritage sector have to deal with, leading to an approach to digital transformation.

The legal aspects of art and culture management were presented from an open perspective, culminating in an approach to the modern issues related to the digital transition.
