Traditional Knowledge and Copyright: the Implications for Digitising Pacific Island Cultural Heritage Collections

So what would this mean for those with an inter­est in dig­i­ti­za­tion? Despite being a new legal frame­work, the pro­pos­al may lead to some famil­iar prob­lems for cul­tur­al her­itage insti­tu­tions. Many of you are aware of the prob­lem of orphan works in copy­right. This is where the own­er of a pro­tect­ed work is uniden­ti­fi­able or uncon­tactable, and because they can’t be found it fol­lows that they can’t grant per­mis­sion to oth­ers to copy their work.

Strange Bedfellows: Digital Humanities, Internet Art, and the Weird Internet

I’m here at MITH today, and I want­ed to talk a lit­tle bit about dig­i­tal human­i­ties from my posi­tion as an inter­est­ed out­sider. I’ve always kept a fin­ger in acad­e­mia, at first through game stud­ies and peo­ple study­ing video games, and more recent­ly through elec­tron­ic lit­er­a­ture and those fields. I’m not going to go into a what is it?” debate because I know every­one who’s in dig­i­tal human­i­ties is very tired of those, but we know when we see it, right?
