Copyright & Licensing for Visual Artists: Monetizing Your Rights

with Alexandra Darraby, Esq.

We'll start by demystifying the Ten Biggest Myths About Copyright, and then proceed to focus on practical explanations for artists and
galleries on the following issues: what copyright ownership really means, what monetizing a copyright means, how to license a copyright, and business strategies and pros and cons of licensing. We'll also discuss what happens when you post your copyrighted work on the Internet - have you exposed your copyright to foreign territories where American copyright law does not apply, and, if so, what are the ramifications? What are courts saying about “publication” in the web world? Finally, we'll discuss issues surrounding appropriation art and the recently decided Richard Prince and Gagosian Gallery case.
