I recently had a piece on ArtsHacker addressing questions about copyright which I see as a complement to an earlier piece I wrote for ArtsHacker that directed readers to tools that can help determine if a work is still under copyright.
This more recent piece includes a guide created by Harvard Law School’s Technology and Intellectual Property Legal Clinic.
Part of the stated aim of that guide was to help those creating protest art understand what uses of a public figure’s likeness is permitted.
But as I write on ArtsHacker, what I like about the guide is that it talks about how to identify those who hold the copyright of a work and what information you should provide when contacting them for permission to use their work.
Perhaps just as important for creative folks looking to expand their reach, the guide discusses how to license and merchandise your own work.
