Katter: First Australian Art Fakes can boomerang back to Asia

KAP Federal Member for Kennedy, Bob Katter said “I will be moving Legislation on the resumption of Parliament that all products sold as Aboriginal craft are made in Australia and licensed by a First Australian organisation”.

Mr Katter’s move comes in response to calls from First Australian groups, Indigenous Art Code, Arts Law Australia the Copyright Council of Australia for it to be illegal to import and sell art sold as ‘Aboriginal style’ souvenirs. The push comes in the lead up to the Commonwealth Games where the market is expected to be flooded with fake Aboriginal arts and crafts.
