Abstract The pursuit of cultural objects stolen from public and private owners has increased dramatically in recent years. Requests for the return or repatriation of cultural objects looted by the Nazis, removed by colonial and trust powers, or illicitly excavated and exported from archaeologically rich states have come home to public cultural heritage agencies, including museums, libraries, archives and galleries. The risk of loaned items being subject to seizure or suit has, it is argued, undermined the significant cultural advantages of exchanges and loan arrangements, and prompted the federal government to consider the adoption of immunity from seizure and suit legislation. This article considers the possible scope of such an immunity from seizure and suit statute, including the possibility of it being applied to seizures arising from criminal investigations, particularly the proceeds of crime.
