It is an attempt to take control of state funded art away from corporate collectors and commercial galleries by protecting artists/performers rights (disability, race, sex, sexual orientation, age and religion). The culture of multinational collectors and their spouses can be resisted even if the globalisation of their corporations is spreading. The case has implications for the UK and also for Europe as the EE Regulations 2003 are formulated out of the EU Employment Framework Directive (Directive 2000/78).
