In the nature of things, an article dealing with law and art will necessarily entail to a substantial degree the projection of the latter against the backdrop of the law's restrictions and inevitably the present article will be largely so concerned. However, it is also possible - and assuredly necessary - to view the subject-matter positively against the law's attempts to afford protection to artistic and literary endeavour. The growth of interest in cultural property since the Second World War has made it increasingly evident that problems inherent in dealing with creative works require specialized rather than general solutions.
