I have created this blog primarily to inform artists and visual arts professionals on the issues of copyright law. As we have entered the 21st century copyright concerns are becoming increasingly important in the art and design industry. This website examines cases in copyright infringement that directly implicate visual artists. Artists and art professionals should understand and respect copyright laws and the complex and challenging issues that are now part of the daily reality of all artists who work with images. Due to rapid developments in technology, the increased ability to store digital material and the ease of the transmission of images, the artist is expected to have a good grasp on copyright law and how it is interpreted in an ever-changing social and technological landscape. Artists should be aware of what rights they have to their own works in addition to knowing their responsibilities when using creative work of others. Thus, this blog will serve as a reference for copyright laws and what constitutes fair use. Through the presentation and examination of current copyright cases, trends and affairs I wish to inform the artists and art professionals in order to be better prepared for the future.
