The Art Law


CLE credits earned: 1 General Credit (WA 1 Law and Legal)

The courts, state legislatures and Congress provide artists certain protections and preferences in bits and pieces under general principles of law. This course combines and synthesizes artist rights in a concise introductory survey grounded in statutory and common law. Rights recognition has expanded as a result of market economics for artworks, NFTs and multimillion dollar judgments based upon moral rights violations. The course offers its own materials, portions of which are sourced to Darraby on Art Law (2021), a treatise available directly from publisher Thomson Reuters West at a publisher’s discount for limited time to MyLawCLE registrants for this course only.

This course is co-sponsored with myLawCLE.

Key topics to be discussed:

•   Artist Consignment
•   Artist Copyright
•   Artist Moral Rights
•   Artist Publicity Rights, social media, websites
