IP seminars for artists

<First Art Law Seminars: Rights of Artists You Want to Know and Basic Knowledge of Contracts Law>

Do artists have the right to be involved in museum exhibitions? The main right that artists have is the copyright of their work, but few artists may be able to speak confidently about the content of their copyrights. That's no wonder, the copyright is a fairly complex area, and even experts often disagree on the subject. What are some of the things that an artist should be aware of when signing a contract with a gallery or licensing an artwork?

This webinar, co-hosted by Mr. Kodai Kimura, a lawyer in charge of the series "Art Law" on the web edition of "Bijutsu Techo” (one of the most popular art magazine in Japan), One Asia Lawyers Art Law Practice Team and Startbahn Inc., will cover the basics of artists' rights and contracts that you should know about.
