Copyright Law for Artists, Photographers and Designers

This is an artists' guide to their rights under copyright law - whether they have been commissioned to do some work, if the works are transformed into different media, resale rights, 'substantial copying', marketing and promo literature, multiple copyrights, dealing with groups such as DACS and putting your work into art libraries and visual search engines. Copyright law is a grey area for many artists and yet it is vitally important that they understand what their rights are and how to make money from these rights. In this book, the author dispels a lot of the myths that have grown up about the subject and explains the do's and don'ts and the pros and cons of how to make the most of artists' copyright entitlements. This is a useful guide for anyone working in the field of the arts.
