On October 16, 2008, the DePaul University College of Law Center for Intellectual Property Law and Information Technology (CIPLIT®) and Center for Art, Museum and Cultural Heritage Law held a major conference where leading experts examined the basic rules of nonprofit museum governance and how those rules apply to the growing challenge of collecting cultural property in light of new laws, court decisions and professional ethical guidelines; evolving museum practices and standards in collecting antiquities; sovereign immunity and immunity of art works; and the need for further standards for donor/collector museum relationships.
