Despite the Language, Getty Head was Looted

Discussing the latest Getty admission of guilt (and its language) Derek Fincham reveals:
My rule of thumb when visiting a museum is, if they don't tell you about the history of an object, there is very good chance it was looted.
It would be interesting to know if he'd support the use of the same maxim for items in private collections and dealers' stock.
