Museologists must have a variety of skills, among them the capacity to understand the statutes that govern daily practice. Whatever the mandate of the museum, those working in the field must understand and be able to apply appropriately the main statutes that circumscribe their actions and decisions. When it comes to copyright, Quebec museum professionals have to be familiar with two statutes: the Canadian Copyright Act and Quebec’s Act Respecting the Professional Status of Artists in the Visual Arts, Arts and Crafts and Literature, and Their Contracts with Promoters. There are many issues associated with copyright, as well as a variety of obligations and responsibilities respecting dissemination, management, conservation, and other museum-related activities.
