British Museum to police EBay

October 3, 2006 at 2:42 pm 1 comment

The Register has an article announcing that the British Museum will begin policing EBay to prevent unlawful sales of antique goods across the Internet. The article states that the British Museum will be monitoring EBay for the sale of potentially academically valuable artefacts. Under the Treasure Act of 1996, findings of precious metal objects over 300 years old need to be reported to the local Finds Liaison Officer. You can find out more about the Treasure Act here.

EBay is now hosting a guide, put together by the duo, to help people work out whether they’re trading legally. Check that out here.

From the number of emails I receive about stolen books and artworks, it would be wonderful if a similar initiative could be set up to monitor EBay for stolen goods, but probably there are already some routes for this.
