Abstract: 

Copyright and artistic creation intersect at many levels, but the copyright questions that artists and art students bring can be very different from the usual questions a post-secondary copyright office receives. This presentation will look at the variety of different questions/issues that have arisen at ACAD or SFU; the need to think outside the box in dealing with artist’s questions; the hazard of trying to apply the standard copyright guidelines to artist queries; the mistake of trying to fit the copyright needs of artists and art students into the standard institutional copyright box and when to apply a risk assessment to artists’ use of copyright protected works.

Description: 

Presented June 1, 2018 at the ABC Copyright Conference in Vancouver, BC.
