Situation in 2006 Te Papa Press – case-by- case Te Papa Picture Library – providing information to clients Te Papa Store – case-by- case
Resulting Issues Copyright status of the same works assessed repeatedly Lack of centralised updated contacts and addresses Lack of information on what had previously been negotiated and when licences expire Lack of relationship management with rights owners
Change in Approach Centralise contact information for rights owners Centralise Rights ownership information Use the copyright licence process to manage relationship
