Arts Law Conversations: A Surprisingly Readable Guide for Arts Entrepreneurs
These days we all create, and we all consume the creative work of others.
Arts Law Conversations is intended for artists (musicians, filmmakers, writers, performers, visual artists); for industry professionals (agents, managers, lawyers, galleries, venues); for teachers and students; for the business community.
In 52 short, understandable "Conversations" featuring characters in real-life situations, Arts Law Conversationshelps readers spot and understand the legal issues that too often cause creators and consumers alike to roll their eyes and use bad words.
You'll get it. You might even laugh.
Arts Law Conversations is divided into four sections: Navigating the Legal System; Intellectual Property; Contracts; and Business Issues You Might Have Overlooked.
The book uses a humorous, storytelling format; is organized sequentially for classroom use; is fully indexed; and includes an extensive glossary.
Arts Law Conversations won a Gold Medal in the 2014 Independent Publisher (IPPY) Awards. It is being used as a text in business of art programs nationwide.
