In particular, it was pointed out that in the present context, a modern museum institution is to revise its strategy for managing intellectual property objects that it owns. The need for such an approach is dictated by the legal use of museum pieces, as well as opportunities for identifying business models and economic benefits provided by the intellectual property system. Thus, through the management of intellectual property, museum objects can generate additional income and their use shall not affect the rights of third parties.Details:
