                                    Some thoughts about Law and the Art World.


Collectors should understand that the copyright to artwork belongs to the artist who by law retains the copyright when the work is purchased.  What this means is that the buyer takes possession only the painting, photograph, or sculpture, while the artist retains all the rights of reproduction. It is the artist, and not the collector, who is solely able to make prints or copies of the artwork. Federal law declares that the rights of copyright last for the life of the artist, plus seventy years.


Adapted from a column by Bill Frazier, Montana attorney, in Art of the West, July/August 2011, p. 92.

Life is energy, and energy is creativity.  And even when individuals pass on, the energy is retained in the work of art, locked in it and awaiting release if only someone will take the time and the care to unlock it.
