Legalities

Legalities℠ is a regular column for AIGA|SF by OW&E member Linda Joy Kattwinkel, who is herself a visual artist and former graphic artist. In the column, Linda Joy specifically answers questions raised by visual artists, but many of the issues are equally applicable to those who create or utilize works in all creative disciplines. Writers, musicians, filmmakers, fabric designers, and industrial designers, for example, and any of their clients will also find relevant information on copyright law, trademarks, rights of publicity and privacy, licensing, gallery and agency relationships, co-authorship agreements, and publishing contracts.
