"Chuck a Copyright on It”: Dilemmas of Digital Return and the Possibilities for Traditional Knowledge Licenses and Labels


This article by Kim Christen and Jane Anderson focuses on the creation of an innovative network of licenses and labels delivered through an accessible, educational, and informative digital platform called Local Contexts, aimed specifically at the complex intellectual property needs of Indigenous peoples, communities, and collectives wishing to manage, maintain, and preserve their digital cultural heritage. The publication was used by Jane Anderson for her session on intellectual property at the 2015 ATALM pre-conference workshop sponsored by the Sustainable Heritage Network titled "Developing Tools to Navigate Intellectual Property and Protect Cultural Heritage," held in Washington DC on September 10, 2015.
