Itzehoe and Zuckerfabrik Soest GmbH v.

(57) Such a definition, with its reference to monetary values and the absence of any acknowledgement of cultural worth, seems more in line, conceptually, with an assessment of the value of ordinary property (by necessity, economic in nature), than a consideration of the worth of cultural objects.
