Lack of political will or academic inertia? The need for non-legal responses to the issue of Indigenous art and copyright SKU3063

Marie Hadley

This article describes the failure of Australia’s indigenous art and copyright commentary to move beyond the groundbreaking work of academics in the late 1980s and 90s. In particular, the author examines the claim that the lack of culturally appropriate protection of works is attributable to an inopportune political climate, and concludes that a lack of political will is no excuse for academic inertia. She argues that it is necessary to look outside of the traditional legal responses to this issue to alternatives like copyleft so that the commentary may be revitalised and once again actively seek culturally appropriate protection of indigenous works.
