Collectables Crime as 'culture'?

Marguerite Cawley, 'Colombia Artifact Smuggling Case Shows Links Between Drugs and Culture', InSight Crime , 02 September 2014.

That's a strange definition of "culture" though, when what is being collected consists is looted, smuggled and stolen. The 'culture of cultural crime' is an obvious oxymoron. As is the 'culture' of cultural criminals. Yet it is in this which no-questions-asked collectors run the risk of becoming involved.
