In Chapter 3, Chowdhury discusses various policy issues associated with the digitization and management of cultural heritage information. He argues that management of digital cultural heritage information involves a number of social, legal and policy issues. For example, while there is a general consensus that cultural heritage information should be made available to everyone for social good, there are a number of intellectual property and digital rights management issues. There are also some ownership and cultural sensitivity issues; for example, specific government policies and guidelines have been formulated for handling of cultural heritage information related to specific indigenous communities in countries like Australia and New Zealand. Chapter 3 discusses some of these policies and their implications as well as the provenance and digital rights management issues associated with cultural heritage information.
