"A Proposal to Improve the Protection of New Zealand’s Movable Cultural Heritage by Means of a Statutory Trust"
Jonathan Keate, 1993
This article examines and evaluates the effectiveness of the Protection of Movable Cultural Heritage Bill, focusing on the recovery of illegally exported cultural property with reference to the private international law principles of unenforceability of foreign penal and other public laws. The author proposes the creation of a statutory trust, which would accord with charitable trust principles, as a more effective means to recover illegally exported cultural objects through proceedings in overseas courts.

In Peer International Corp v Termidor Music Publishers Ltd  2 WLR 849 the English Court of Appeal applied the lex situs rule to deny extraterritorial effect to a foreign governmental act (Cuban Law 860) in regard to (English-owned) copyright. Although this decision has effectively overruled Lorentzen v Lydden & Co Ltd  2 KB 202, the author points out that reference was made to the nature of the decree (confiscatory or not), which should not have been a relevant consideration on the facts of the case.
