The conference was a joint venture of the Arts Law Centre of Australia and Charles Sturt University. It brought together metropolitan and regional legal practitioners and experts in arts ownership issues, arts practitioners and administrators and others with an interest in the arts. These published proceedings capture some of the spirit of the deliberations and are a valuable resource in providing information on sources of expert help on matters of rights and ownership.
