Visual artists need to protect their freedom to create, and they need to protect their creations against legal violations. Now there’s an highly readable and affordable guide for visual artists that explains their many legal rights, the restrictions they’re subject to, and the ways they can protect their artworks from illegalities — PLI’s All About Rights for Visual Artists.
Written by leading art law practitioners, All About Rights for Visual Artists examines the kinds of visual expressions that are (and aren’t) protected by the First Amendment and shows you how to copyright art works; protect them against copyright and trademark infringement; avoid infringement and defamation suits; appropriate other artists’ images in legal ways; protect rights when serving as an artist for hire; and achieve the right remedies when rights are violated.
The guide also shows what artists can (and can’t do) in the virtual world under the law and how new laws are attempting to address this ever-expanding artistic realm.
All About Rights for Visual Artists is a vital resource for all visual artists and for attorneys involved in helping to protect and advance visual artists’ legal and moral rights.
