Protecting Your Copyright with Public Art

When it comes to public art, what is fair use and what is infringement of your copyright? If your artwork is in the public realm, chances are someone has taken photographs of it and used them for their own purposes. It's a double edged sword as artist's work can go viral on social media and add to their desirability and marketability, but when commerce is involved, it can get tricky.  The Arts Council of Indianpolis has pulled together this quick tipsheet to help artists navigate this space. 

Create Equity - A Resource Blog for the Entire Arts Community

Create Equity is a research-backed investigation of the most important issues in the arts and what we, collectively and individually, can do about them. Founded in October 2007 by Ian David Moss, Createquity rapidly gained acclaim from readers across the web and has been called “the strongest, most provocative, well-connected arts [blog] that exists today” and “so amazingly good it’s almost in its own category of resource.” Once a one-person shop, Createquity now boasts a full-fledged editorial team and has published work by nearly 50 writers. In summer 2014, anticipating the evolving needs of its readership, Createquity overhauled its editorial structure, priorities, and online presence to place a new emphasis on translating ideas to action to impact. We are committed to helping make the arts ecosystem work better for artists and audiences by making high-value information and analysis about critical issues in our field available to current and emerging decision-makers across the sector.
