A User's Guide to Copyright is intended as a guide and a reference work on all aspects of copyright, including ownership, transmission, and licensing. This book also deals with the more straightforward copyright problems that arise and explores copyright law as it applies to certain organizations, businesses, and people for whom copyright plays an important part in their daily life, from publishers and printers to libraries, schools, music industry, film industry, television and radio stations, computer software and firmware, and character merchandising. This book is comprised of 29 chapters divided into two sections and begins with an overview of copyright law, paying particular attention to the basic rules of copyright, statutes and statutory instruments, and Copyright Act 1956. The reader is then introduced to copyright works encompassing literature, drama, music, and the arts as well as sound recordings, cinematograph films, and television and radio broadcasts. The following chapters discuss the concept of originality, breach of confidence, and publication in relation to copyright. Infringement of copyright is also considered, along with exceptions and defenses to copyright actions; the law on industrial designs; and the uses of copyright in fields such as publishing, music, libraries, performing arts, and architecture. This monograph is designed to assist people whose work involves them in day-to-day dealings with copyright.

If a picture is worth a thousand words, then it's a good bet that at least half of those words relate to the picture's copyright status. Art historians, artists, and anyone who wants to use the images of others will find themselves awash in byzantine legal terms, constantly evolving copyright law, varying interpretations by museums and estates, and despair over the complexity of the whole situation. Here, on a white—not a high—horse, Susan Bielstein offers her decades of experience as an editor working with illustrated books. In doing so, she unsnarls the threads of permissions that have ensnared scholars, critics, and artists for years. Organized as a series of “takes” that range from short sidebars to extended discussions, Permissions, A Survival Guide explores intellectual property law as it pertains to visual imagery. How can you determine whether an artwork is copyrighted? How do you procure a high-quality reproduction of an image? What does “fair use” really mean? Is it ever legitimate to use the work of an artist without permission? Bielstein discusses the many uncertainties that plague writers who work with images in this highly visual age, and she does so based on her years navigating precisely these issues. As an editor who has hired a photographer to shoot an incredibly obscure work in the Italian mountains (a plan that backfired hilariously), who has tried to reason with artists' estates in languages she doesn't speak, and who has spent her time in the archival trenches, she offers a snappy and humane guide to this difficult terrain. Filled with anecdotes, asides, and real courage, Permissions, A Survival Guide is a unique handbook that anyone working in the visual arts will find invaluable, if not indispensable.

The intellectual property protection afforded to works of art is receiving increased attention by artists,museums, galleries, auction houses, publishers and their professional staff and legal advisors, as well as by those teaching or studying copyright and/or the law of cultural property. Contemporary artists are pushing copyright law to extremes. The European Union is likely to soon formally adopt an artists' resale right (droit de suite) directive. The recent adoption of the digital copyright directive will also further strengthen the rights of artists as regards the exploitation of their works via the Internet. This is the first text to specifically examine in detail the intellectual property rights protecting artistic works and artists' rights generally in the United Kingdom. The focus is on the UK but where appropriate other relevant jurisdictions are discussed. Recent European developments and the evolving UK case law in this area including the recent House of Lords' decision in Designers Guild v Russell Williams are also addressed. The Internet and related intellectual property rights to copyright and moral rights are considered as well, including the law of passing off, breach of confidence, trade marks and domain name protection.
