“Display At Your Own Risk (DAYOR) is a research-led exhibition experiment featuring digital surrogates of public domain works of art produced by cultural heritage institutions of international repute. The project includes a Gallery Exhibition as well as an open source version of that exhibition intended for public use.”
Main Results of the Study
• Cultural institutions’ online policies are consistently ‘hidden’ from the user, are inconsistently labelled and difficult to access.
• Only 35 of the digital surrogate images contain information regarding what restrictions apply (or do not apply) to their use; 37 contained no data at all. Further, this metadata is often in conflict with the online policies for the cultural institution.
• The study identifies 4 levels of risk when reusing digital surrogate images: open/no risk, low risk, medium risk and high risk. Risk levels are associated with clear and broad policies permitting e.g. commercial use, and copyright status.
