Art law for artists
Intellectual property is the artist´s right to protect their original work while a copyright is established when an original work is created tangibly (not just conceptually). However, unregistered work can often be hard to prove as artist´s own, which is why it is important to keep digital or physical records. If there´s ever need to take a case to court, the artist must think about how well he or she can demonstrate to be the creator of the artwork in question.
Art law for art galleries
Gallery has responsibility over their work and the one of the artist, therefore it is copyright laws that have to be observed at all times, agreements have to be created to establish legitimate rights to publish artworks for exhibition purposes.
Art law for private collectioners
One of the most important questions to ask when purchasing art is whether the work is free and clear of liens or other encumbrances now and in the future.
When a purchaser of an artwork later discovers that the work is not authentic, the statute of limitations in different countries offer different time frames for filing a suit of the breach of authenticity.
