Thinking Outside the Box: Cronin on Resolving Cultural Property Claims

Charles Cronin, University of Southern California Law School, will be holding an informal talk on a paper he is preparing on the intersection between Cultural Property and IP law and a proposal on how cultural property claims can be resolved.

From the abstract:

If we were to perceive cultural artifacts fundamentally as works of information rather than of tangible property, the location of the original instantiations of them would be of little significance.  3D technologies might soon permit source nations to retain the essential intellectual value of cultural artifacts found within their borders, while simultaneously capitalizing upon sales of the originals to collectors who will pay for their “aura”.   

The talk will take place on Feb. 18th at 1:30 PM at GW Law School, Burns Bulding, 716 20th Street, NW, Washington, DC Rm. 505.
