Museums and cultural institutions are: - users and displayers of the works created by others - creators of original works - owners of collections of images, objects and documents - licensers of images and name - merchants of products - educational institutions entitled to fair use exceptions. With each of these roles comes the obligation to respect and maintain the legal responsibilities that define and govern these multiple relationships.
