Reviews

"Legal Guide for the Visual Artist" by Tad Crawford arms artists with a broad general knowledge of most legal issues they’re likely to face, and includes raft of legal forms that should address many foreseeable legal needs. Starting with chapters on traditional intellectual property—copyright, trademarks, trade dress, and some patents—Crawford delves into more esoteric aspect of intellectual property such as moral rights and the relatively recent Visual Artists Rights Act ("VARA"). The author balances these more personal and insightful historical portions with current issues facing the modern artist, such as the increasing likelihood of an artist being both artist and producer and the pitfalls that come with this dual role. Multimedia and the breadth of what that term means is also touched upon in the book." Legal Guide for the Visual Artist" deserves a place in your library if you do any type of artistic work at all.
