The legalities surrounding the creation, sale, collecting, gifting, importing, exporting and preservation of art are complex and ever-evolving. Written by a group of legal experts, Art Law: Cases and Controversies peaks behind the curtain to provide insight on some key business, tax and intellectual property issues associated with this USD$50-billion global market. Comparisons between the legal realities in Canada and the United States provide useful context, along with an examination of the history behind the legal landscape.
The book explores a broad range of art law-related topics, addressing questions such as:
- Are non-humans protected by copyright?
- Can anyone copy public graffiti?
- Should artists be paid when their works are resold?
- What are the rights of subjects of photographs?
- How do we protect against plundered, looted or stolen art?
- What are the remedies for purchasers of forged or fake art?
- When is a copy fair use/fair dealing, and when is it infringement?
In addition, Art Law: Cases and Controversies examines infamous matters such as the “Woman in Gold” case and Kevin Hearn v. Maslak McLeod Gallery (as depicted in the film There are No Fakes), offering perspectives of the lawyers involved.
