Copyright Law Archives

Can you copyright performing arts?

You know that copyrights protect things like novels and photographs. These solid works of art are owned by their creators in most cases, unless that ownership is sold -- in the case of a commissioned work, for instance. But what about the performing arts? Do those get the same protection?

When do you get a photo copyright?

The internet is a great place for spreading pictures, art, information and much else, but it also creates a problem. For photographers, for instance, it may mean that their photos get stolen and used without their permission. Many pictures get passed around so much -- all people need to do to save a digital picture is right-click and save it to the computer -- that few people have any idea who the original creator was.

Copyright case leads to record verdict but small payout

A recent copyright case between Xceligent and CoStar has finally come to a close after years of proceedings. It set a record with the award given out: $500 million. However, the money that will be paid by the insurance company involved in the suit is much lower, at just $10.75 million.

Stolen artwork: What is the root issue?

You keep a close eye on the art scene that you work in, so it does not take you long to find out that someone stole some of your work. You discover that they're selling products with your art on it. Maybe they're making book covers, t-shirts, wall prints or a whole host of other products.
