Summary
Describes the digital collection of photographs and other media when working with Warumungu women to produce a community history "Anyinginyi Manuku Apparr: Stories From Our Country"; deciding how to manage and present this cultural knowledge led to the production of a DVD; describes how material returned from the National Archives in Darwin was viewed by family members who decided the access conditions to the repatriated documents; age, gender, ritual knowledge and territorial affiliations are all relevant in determining access; describes how in the production of the DVD cultural standards were reworked for the digital domain; it was decided that family groups would have passwords, with each group deciding who can access the images and sounds and what can be appropriately remixed; discusses the redefining of cultural objects - digital archives, DVDs, CDs, web sites - and the redefining of notions of property, ownership and the public; discusses the changes to the Copyright Act; the Digital Agenda amendments gives copyright owners the right to control how their work is electronically transmitted to the public or made available online; the Moral Rights amendments attempts to ensure that the original creators of works are recognised and have some control over their work whether or not they are also the copyright owners, giving them the right of attribution and the right of integrity; also discusses the Indigenous Communal Moral Rights Bill of 2003 and shortcomings of the proposed amendments; suggests that for the moment new protocols will raise public awareness of the communal nature of Aboriginal cultural materials and the "moral necessity of consultation prior to use" (p. 331); outlines briefly the idea of Lawrence Lessig in his book "Free Culture" that promotes the internet as an "innovation commons"; discusses creative commons and the implications for Indigenous knowledge; it is important to protect Indigenous knowledge, to have equitable collaborations, to maintain integerity; the Warumungu DVD is a commercial product, a kin-based archive, and a platform for cultural innovation; argues that the notion of the "public domain" has always been an "exclusionary proposition" and a "space fo define who does not count"; proposes a new space produced at the intersection of digital technologies and Indigenous initiatives
