US Congress Lobbied over Resale Rights
Art Newspaper    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
The Artists' Rights Society (ARS), the main copyright and licensing collecting agency in the United States, is pushing for legislation that would see droit de suite, or artists' resale rights, become federal law. Although previous attempts to bring a royalties scheme to the US have largely failed, the new legislation will be different, said Theodore Feder, the president of ARS. More

Myths about Fair Use
Inside Higher Ed    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Academics enjoy some of the greatest benefits of the US copyright law's doctrine of fair use—which lets them use copyrighted material without permission or payment, under some circumstances. Now if only they knew they did. In Peter Jaszi's and my research for Reclaiming Fair Use, which charts the resurgence of fair use and explains how to use it, we came across as much mythology as knowledge among our colleagues. More

Creative Commons Images and You: A Quick Guide for Image Users
Ars Technica    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Here at Ars we're big fans of Creative Commons, both the idea behind it and the work that gets produced. As publishers, we benefit from Creative Commons in a number of ways: we look things up in Creative Commons–licensed Wikipedia (used with caution, of course), the Creative Commons–related policy issues that we cover give us a steady stream of great news content, and we make use of Creative Commons–licensed images in our news stories. This last piece has historically been a tricky issue for us to navigate, given the number of different license types. More

The Importance of Small Arts Organizations
Huffington Post    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Over the past twenty years, many arts organizations have been forced to raise increasing sums of money as growth in ticket revenue has not matched growth in budgets. This necessity has been the mother of invention: arts organizations in this country are far more sophisticated and creative about fundraising now than ever before. While this increase in development acumen is in evidence at many arts organizations, larger organizations have had a distinct advantage. More

Public Art Is "About Soaring Possibility of Man" and Sometimes Outrage
Seattle Times    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Maybe it was the fairy. Or it may have been the toad. But the combination of a fairy riding a toad as a finalist in a sculpture competition at a new federal defense complex—along with the $600,000 price tag—set off howls of protest from disgruntled residents, with local critics dubbing the artwork 'the gurgling toad.' It's the latest flap over public art—the movement born in the 1970s to set aside a percentage of federal, state, and local construction projects for artwork—and it reached a fever pitch last spring in northern Virginia, stretching from a congressman's office to local critics to the blogosphere.

The Trivialities and Transcendence of Kickstarter
New York Times Magazine    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
We had this idea, some friends and I, for a small public-art project in New Orleans last year. The problem was, it involved some professional printing that would cost a few thousand dollars, which none of us had. Usually that's where such conversations end: it would be cool if we could do X, but we're not going to get a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts, even if we knew how to pursue such a thing. But this time something occurred to me: What about that Kickstarter thing? More

Hidden Persuaders: A Look at the (Very Private) World of the Top Art Advisers
Financial Times    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
They don't figure in the lists of top collectors, yet they spend millions every year at auction and through dealers. They get first dibs on the most sought-after works of art at the top fairs, yet outside the art world their names are unknown—and they like to keep it that way. They work in a profession that hardly existed ten years ago, which is expanding rapidly, and for which there are no recognized qualifications. More

Stamping Out the Illicit Trade in Cultural Artifacts
Guardian    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
The allegations could have come straight out of an Indiana Jones movie. Three art dealers and a collector have been accused of running an antiquities smuggling ring that illegally shipped Egyptian treasures, including sarcophagi, funerary boats, and limestone figures over two thousand years old, to the United States. The relics arrived stateside in innocuous freight boxes, labeled "antiques" and "wooden panels," in order to escape scrutiny. More
