Black Arts: The $800 Million Family Selling Art Degrees and False Hopes
Forbes
Behind the shiny façade at Academy of Art University in San Francisco is a less than lustrous business: luring starry-eyed art students into taking on massive amounts of debt based on the "revolutionary principle" that anyone can make a career as a professional artist. No observable talent is required to gain admission: the school will accept anyone who has a high school diploma and is willing to pay the $22,000 annual tuition (excluding room and board), no art portfolio required.

Authors, Keep Your Copyrights. You Earned Them
Authors Guild
Most trade publishers do not ask for an outright assignment of all exclusive rights under copyright; their contracts usually call for copyright to be in the author's name. But it's another story in the world of university presses. Most scholarly publishers routinely present their authors with the single most draconian, unfair clause we routinely encounter—taking all the exclusive rights to an author's work as if the press itself authored the work

Soaring Art Market Attracts a New Breed of Advisers for Collectors
New York Times
For decades, art advisers were a small club of professionals who personally helped build collections for clients, using their scholarship and connoisseurship. Their role was to consult and offer expertise, rarely to make deals. But the rapidly changing art market—characterized by soaring prices, high fees, and a host of wealthy new buyers—has prompted scores of new players to jump into the pool, from young art-world arrivistes to former auction-house executives with an abundance of expertise and connections.
