4.D. Traditional material ownership statement
Use the term copyright to indicate consistently in the catalogue the significance of the statement to follow. Qualify it with a suitable explanatory term for the material such as traditional ownership. Give any extended contextual information in a note (see 7.B.13).
Copyright (traditional ownership): Traditional Owners of the Waake Land Holding Estate
Copyright: Central Land Council
Note: The people who are the traditional owners of these songs hold the right to authorise their performance, and/or access to and/or copying of the recordings. Songs were sung by Traditional Owners of the Waake Land Holding Estate for the Aboriginal Land Commissioner as evidence of land ownership of the Waake Land Holding Estate for the Kaytej/Warlpiri/Warlmanpa Land Claim, heard before the Aboriginal Land Commissioner in 1981.
Recordings were made of this performance by Grace Koch on behalf of the Central Land Council
(In this example the traditional ownership of the content of the recording is by the Traditional Owners of the Waake Land Holding Estate. Additionally there is copyright in the physical recording. Here Grace Koch, employed by the Central Land Council to participate in the land claim case, recorded the performance as part of the evidence during the proceedings. Therefore the Central Land Council owns the recording rights)
