The Photography Committee Presents

Copyright and Fine Art
Wednesday, June 15, 8 PM

15 Gramercy Park South (east of Park Avenue South @ 20th Street
Fine art and the copyright laws have always had an uneasy relationship. Artists should be free to use their surroundings as raw material for free expression. But shouldn’t artists get paid for their creativity? And what happens when we live in a media world and our surroundings are locked down by copyright? Should an artist have the power to use the courts to seize and destroy another artist’s work? Join us as attorney Ray Dowd takes us on a visually-driven exploration of creativity at the cutting edge and the fate of “appropriation artist” Richard Prince in the ongoing lawsuit with French photographer Patrick Cariou.

Raymond J. Dowd is the author of Copyright Litigation Handbook (West 5th Ed. 2010). He is Co-Chair of the Art Litigation and Dispute Resolution Institute at the New York County Lawyers’ Association. He is an attorney in private practice with Dunnington, Bartholow & Miller LLP a firm with practices in trusts & estates, litigation, copyright, trademark and art law.
