Copyright and Fine Art Webcast CLE: 10/28 By West Legal Ed

Copyright Issues Related to Fine Art

Content Partner: West LegalEdcenter (R)
Price: $135.00*
Description: Since the advent of the Internet, most of our friends, family, and clients have become global publishers, copying and repasting copyrighted works of others on a daily basis. At the same time, contemporary art has skyrocketed in economic and symbolic importance in modern society, with a greatly expanded collector base. Changing media, modes of production, and a general lack of transparency in the art world have created a special realm of problems for both casual participants and seasoned art world veterans alike. Ray Dowd, author of Copyright Litigation Handbook (West 2010), teams up with New York and L.A.-based fine art attorney Amy Goldrich to provide the tools necessary to advise clients navigating these issues.

Among the topics to be discussed:
• Overview of copyright and special problems posed by fine art
• Basic copyright concepts generally applicable to fine art
• Recent cases involving the Visual Artists' Rights Act (VARA)
• Legal relationships in the Art World
• Transfers of possession and title: consignments, private sales, auctions, and unfortunate events
• Copyright Infringement and Fair Use
• First Sale Doctrine
• Work for hire
