Artists, Not Judges, Should Decide Fair Use
Center for Art Law
This piece will focus on two implications of the Cariou and Sconnie Nation analyses: (1) the inherently factual nature of "fair use" analysis; and (2) fair use as an affirmative defense. "Fair use" started as a judge-made remedy to technically correct legal conclusions that led to absurd results, a practice commonly known as "equity." Generally, and in the case of "fair use," equity requires a court to make a significant factual investigation so as to demonstrate why the technical law should not apply.

White Lies? Fibs? Tall Tales? Just Tell the Truth
Huffington Post
Certainly, there are a lot of things that you might be reluctant to tell the truth about that don't seem so terrible, such as one's age. It may be embarrassing for some artists to be older and starting out, or to have not ever sold any work or to not have academic degrees in studio art or to not have any real exhibition history.

An Illustrated Guide to Arthur Danto's "The End of Art"
Hyperallergic
In an obituary for the New York Times, Ken Johnson described Arthur Danto as "one of the most widely read art critics of the Postmodern era." Danto, both a critic and a professor of philosophy, is celebrated for his accessible and affable prose. Despite this, his best-known essay, "The End of Art," continues to be cited more than it is understood. What was Danto's argument? Is art really over? And if so, what are the implications for art history and art making?
