Rhetoric and reality - the debate over trade and culture
AbstractFor the past 40 years a nationalist vision of protection and preservation has captured policy makers in the cultural industries. While some have presented opposing views, until recently they have been sidelined. Like the Northern Alliance in Afghanistan, the opposition to protectionism was confined to a small part of the terrain where it could do little harm to the current regime. Circumstances are changing. In both instances, technology is in part responsible for upsetting the status quo, and an international coalition may be required for lasting change.
