About this item

  • Intellectual property issues, including copyright, trademark, service marks, and fair use
  • Corporate issues, including non-profit status and tax exempt status
  • Governance issues, including trustees and fiduciary duties
      A Legal Dictionary for Museum Professionals features three major sections:
      • In the first, ten common acronyms and symbols are explained.
      • In the second, more than 100 terms such as abandoned property, automatic revocation, charitable trust, conflict of interest, declatory judgment, doctrine of equitable deviation, fiduciary duty, nondistribution constraint, partial gift, quid pro quo contribution, and unrelated business income tax are concisely defined specifically in the context of their relevance to day-to-day museum work.
      • In the final section, ten additional topics are broken out into a more in-depth explanation, allowing the subtleties and complications to be examined and explained in a plain-language manner. These include ethics and the law, licensing, trademark, The Business Judgment Rule, and Non-Profit Organizations and Tax Exemption.
      Written by a museum director who holds a law degree and has practiced law, this reference book is intended to be kept within arm’s reach at a desk and be the first stop for a professional when a question arises.
