Open Content, An Idea Whose Time Has Come

Der J. Paul Getty Trust will zukünftig alle seine digitalen Bestände, die gemeinfrei sind oder an denen Getty die Nutzungsrechte hält, auch für die kommerzielle Nachnutzung kostenlos zugänglich machen.

In einem ersten Schritt werden 4.600 seiner digitalisierten Bestände gemeinfreier Kunstwerke des J. Paul Getty Museum im Rahmen des Open Content Programmes veröffentlicht. Bestände aus den Sondersammlungen des Getty Research Institute und die Getty Vocabularies sollen folgen.

Zu den Gründen für diesen Schritt schreibt James Cuno:

Why open content? Why now? The Getty was founded on the conviction that understanding art makes the world a better place, and sharing our digital resources is the natural extension of that belief. This move is also an educational imperative. Artists, students, teachers, writers, and countless others rely on artwork images to learn, tell stories, exchange ideas, and feed their own creativity. […] Forward-thinking organizations such as the Walters Art Museum, the National Gallery of Art, Yale University, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, and Harvard University have shown how powerful open access to collections and research can be.
