This book provides an overview of various ways in which the spheres of art and copyright law come into contact with one another. While copyright laws are domestic in nature, the arts are increasingly international in scope, inspiration, and dissemination.

The book highlights some of the challenges inherent in this overlap, ranging from definitional discrepancies between disciplines to circumstances that would benefit from more legal clarity – domestic or otherwise – to provide appropriate guidance to creators and to the organizations that display, sell or otherwise use their artworks.

Professor Stech confronts the challenges that are raised today, not only by digitization but by new media of expression.

As international art fairs proliferate, and as artists of all disciplines inspire and build from each other’s works and ideas, the role of copyright in an artist’s life can only become more important. Stech introduces artists to legal concepts in the intellectual property space that could become important tools in managing their artworks now and into the future.

  • Covers UK, USA and Australian law
  • Fully up-to-date, including 2014 amendments to UK law
  • Key tool for artists, dealers, museums and legal advisers to understand the role of copyright nationally and internationally
