Intellectual property is generally regarded in human sciences as the right by whoever has produced data to become the owner of them and use them exclusively for years, sometimes for decades (at times dispersing them without permitting anyone else to view them). This practice is based on an incorrect interpretation of the principle of intellectual property, which must not be confused with intellectual ‘maternity’ (a term coined to indicate intellectual authorship), which instead must be protected and exploited more effectively and to a greater extent than today, using a system of accurate references as scientific research is well aware of. The term maternity was chosen because just as ‘…the mother is always certain’, the same may be said for the individual generating and producing the archaeological raw data. In order to determine the ‘mother’ of archaeological data, the research group of MAPPA Lab (University of Pisa) evaluated archaeological documentation in the light of Law 633/41 (Law on copyright and other related rights), articles 106 et seq. of the D.Lgs. 42/2004 (Code of Cultural Heritage and Landscape), D.Lgs. 196/2003 (Privacy Code) and D.Lgs. 30/2005 (Industrial Property Code), and of their more recent modifications.
