  • Issue 2 - Art in prisons - prisoners have rights too!
    • Abstract: Valenti, Anika
      Whilst in prison, PV created a painting as part of a rehabilitation program. In return for agreeing to allow the prison service to hang his painting in a recreation area of the prison, PV was to receive $120 worth of "buy-ups" at the prison shop. PV never received the "buy-ups". At a later date, PV saw his painting, without accreditation, reproduced on a poster advertising the rehabilitation program. PV never gave permission for his painting to be reproduced in this way.

    • Abstract: Arnup, Jennifer
      The end of the financial year generally sends people into the type of paralysing panic attack which makes them put off looking at their financial affairs for the past year. However, lodging a tax return can be a great way of getting money back as an artist, particularly if you work for yourself. Read on for a guide to a pain free tax return.

  • Issue 2 - Copyright and the digital economy: ALRC discussion paper
    • Abstract: Averill, Morris
      Australian artists may have to live with an appropriation culture of mashups, sampling and appropriation of images by other artists if a 'fair use' exception to copyright infringement is introduced into the Copyright Act 1968 (Cth). An open-ended fair use exception that allows the appropriation of existing work also appears to conflict with the moral rights obligations to provide attribution of authorship and the protection against derogatory treatment of works. The move to an open-ended 'fair use' exception will therefore usurp the decision of the author as to how works will used by others and will impact on the moral rights of the author.

    • Abstract: Valenti, Anika; Wallace, Phoebe
      What do you do when a media organisation publishes a copy of your artwork or photograph in a print or online media source without your permission' Firstly, it is necessary to understand what rights you retain as the artist or creator and what exceptions to copyright and moral rights infringement apply. Then, if you still believe an infringement has occurred, there are number of things you can do to attempt to rectify the situation.

  • Issue 1 - eLicencing on social media sites
    • Abstract: Averill, Morris
      In an April Fools' Day prank, computer game seller Gamestation changed its online terms and conditions to claim the legal right to the souls of all those customers using the service. In order to test whether anyone read the terms and conditions, Gamestation provided an opt-out box in relation to the "Immortal Soul Clause"; 12% of customers clicked the opt-out box and were rewarded with L5 gift voucher; 88% of customers did not read the clause - but were later emailed a notice of nullification that returned their souls.The resistance to reading Terms of Service of digital products and services is almost a social convention as users are presented with a 'take it or leave it' choice. Artists should always read the terms and conditions - the Terms of Service (TOS) - of web sites that present and promote their work as there can be contractual terms, such as licences of copyright, that come close to having the effect of an "Immortal Soul Clause".

    • Abstract: Arnup, Jennifer
      Nicolas Patrick and Daniel Creasey are both involved in managing DLA Piper's Pro Bono practice which is dedicated to a number of worldwide projects related to education, economic empowerment and equality. Last year, DLA Piper was recognised as one of the largest providers of pro bono legal services in the world. This contrasts with the position when Nicolas began as a graduate in 2001, when there was no formal pro bono practice at all. He would later become the firm's first full time pro bono lawyer and is now head of Pro Bono and Corporate Responsibility managing the pro bono practice in all offices located in Europe, the Middle East, Asia and Australia.

  • Issue 1 - Maori culture and identity: Developments in indigenous cultural
           and intellectual property in NZ
    • Abstract: Averill, Morris
      Arts Law has long been involved in advocating for better protection of traditional cultural expressions. This advocacy work is highlighted by Arts Law's involvement in the controversial sculpture created by a non-Indigenous artist, commissioned by a non- Indigenous art gallery for installation in the Blue Mountains which incorporated Wandjina images sacred to the Worrora, Wunumbal and Ngarinyin Aboriginal people of the remote Kimberley. The development of guiding principles to provide appropriate protection for traditional knowledge and traditional cultural expressions - Indigenous Cultural and Intellectual Property (ICIP) - is being considered by the World Intellectual Property Organisation (WIPO) Intergovernmental Committee on Intellectual Property and Genetic Resources, Traditional Knowledge and Folklore. Arts Law Executive Director Robyn Ayres will attend the WIPO conference in Geneva, Switzerland in July 2013.

    • Abstract: Street, Isabella
      Lennon and McCartney, Jaggar and Richards, Elton John and Bernie Taupin... enough said, the list of popular and successful co-songwriters is infinite. Music seems to be one of the most collaborative art forms. However collaboration is not necessarily conducive of coauthorship. Misconceptions regarding authorship and copyright run deep in the music world and are often subject to hostile and impoverishing legal disputes.

  • Issue 1 - Without my permission: Photographing public sculptures
    • Abstract: McHenry, Jasmine
      Sculptures enliven public spaces and often become popular destinations and enduring points of reference for locals and tourists alike. Think of the Statue of Liberty, Michelangelo's David or the J.F. Archibald Memorial Fountain in Hyde Park, Sydney. Many thousands of people have posed for photographs in front of these artistic creations. The recent settlement achieved for a U.S. sculptor for unauthorised use of a photo of his public sculpture engages the debate about the radical differences between Australian and U.S. laws on copyright for sculptures. In Australia, the Copyright Act 1968 (Cth) (Copyright Act) specifically allows the taking, and use of, photos of public sculptures without the sculptor's permission. In the U.S., it's copyright infringement. Arts Law is lobbying for change to the law in Australia, recognising that monetizing images of iconic public artworks is potentially an important source of income for the artist.

  • Issue 1 - Practical effects of the ACNC
    • Abstract: Valenti, Anika
      In the 2011-2012 Budget, the Federal Government announced reforms to the regulation and governance of charities and not-for-profit (NFP) organisations. The reforms are aimed at rectifying inadequacies in the current framework by simplifying how the NFP sector is regulated. The effect will be the reduction of red tape, in addition to improving public trust and support of the NFP sector by increasing transparency and accountability and ensuring tax concessions are correctly utilised.

  • Issue 1 - But that's our traditional knowledge! - Australia's cultural
           heritage laws and ICIP
    • Abstract: Douglas, Tina
      On 3 April 2009, Australia formally gave its support for the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples (UNDRIP). The UNDRIP sets out the basic standards for the recognition and protection of Indigenous peoples' rights, and outlines individual and collective rights of Indigenous peoples in relation to: self-determination, life and security, language, culture and spiritual identity, education, information and employment, participation, development and economic and social rights, rights to country, resources and knowledge and self-governance. This article focuses on Article 31 of the UNDRIP and the extent to which these rights are reflected or implemented in Commonwealth legislation.

    • Abstract: Ayres, Robyn; Carstens, Donna
      In April 2012 Artists in the Black (AITB) commenced its work in FNQ when we attended the first conference of the Indigenous Art Centre Alliance (IACA) in Cairns. Here we were able to give the managers and representatives from the Boards of the Indigenous art centres an idea of the legal issues relevant to their work, as well as the services provided by AITB. IACA then assisted by consulting with the art centres to determine which art centres wanted AITB to visit them and the issues they wanted to find out more about.

  • Issue 4 - Traditional knowledge licences and labels
    • Abstract: Anderson, Jane; Christen, Kim
      While international treaty negotiations about problems associated with intellectual property (IP) and Indigenous peoples' traditional knowledge have made headway, there are still problems that continue to be experienced by Indigenous individuals, families, clans and communities. It is necessary to focus on the development of practical, strategic solutions to very specific IP issues facing Indigenous peoples. One of these foci is how to deal with the ownership, access and control of both cultural material that has been previously documented and recorded and now resides in cultural institutions worldwide. Another involves uses of those cultural materials by Indigenous peoples and communities for community-based archival projects, for cultural heritage preservation purposes, and for projects where Indigenous communities maintain a leading role in determining what cultural traditions and practices can be shared with audiences outside the community.

  • Issue 4 - The Google art project, copyright and the future of museums
    • Abstract: Silvana, Yani
      The Google Art Project (GAP) is a new development in the field of online museums. Unlike, for example, websites of individual museums, it allows users to view collections of visual artworks from galleries around the world on one online platform, searching by artist, artwork or collection. GAP raises important concerns for arts administrators; however as it is only in its infancy there is scope for the issues to be resolved over time and for GAP to make an enduring contribution to public access to, and education about, art. This article will focus primarily on copyright issues, as among their duties arts administrators may be expected to ensure that copyright in the works shown in their museums is protected. This article will also discuss associated issues that arts administrators may have with GAP's representation of global cultural property and with how GAP could affect the future of reallife museums. Concern regarding these latter issues falls within the role of arts administrators in supporting community education about the arts and facilitating public access to museums and ensuring their sustainability. As Kenneth Crews states: 'Museums have a central mission to collect and preserve art and other cultural works, and to make them available to the public'.

  • Issue 4 - Camera rolling and... action! Top 10 legal issues for filmmakers
           to consider
    • Abstract: Valenti, Anika
      Filmmaking is a highly creative process involving the intense collaboration of a vast number of people in order for a production to be completed successfully, on budget and on time. Before getting the show on the road, a number of legal issues have to be considered by the filmmakers. As essential as a camera, these legal issues are key to the exploitability of the film and the protection of the filmmakers themselves.

  • Issue 4 - Perspectives on performer's rights: French or Australian, a
           matter of point of view
    • Abstract: Valerii, Melvina; Everard, Delwyn
      From the perspective of most performing arts practitioners, performers play a vital role in the artistic creative process. An actor's or musician's interpretation of a theatrical work or musical composition can add unique and unforgettable nuances to the performance. Although not regarded as the author of the work in the way that the playwright, choreographer or composer is, they are an essential link between the author and the audience. In recognition of the special contribution made by performers in the communication of copyright works, Australian law now gives performers a limited class of legal rights. In France, the intrinsic significance of the performers' role has long been understood to be deserving of protection and the rights of performers are substantially greater. This article examines the differences between the two systems.

  • Issue 4 - Copyright and the digital economy (ALRC inquiry 2012-2013)
    • Abstract: Averill, Morris
      Digital technology provides creative opportunities as well as challenges for artists, rights holders and consumers of copyrighted material. The emergence of social networking sites, video sharing sites and the further evolution of search engines have resulted in what some commentators describe as Web 2.0. Those internet developments, and the roll out of the Australian National Broadband Network, highlight the importance of the digital economy and the potential for future opportunities and economic and cultural development through new digital technologies. Arts Law's submission to the Australian Law Reform Commission (ALRC) inquiry is an opportunity to put forward the concerns of artists in light of any suggested amendments to the Copyright Act 1968 (Cth) (Copyright Act).

  • Issue 4 - Snapshot of Arts Law in 2012
    • Abstract: Ayres, Robyn
      After 10 years in the Executive Director's seat at Arts Law I can only say "Time flies when you are having fun". It is a real privilege to work for such a brilliant organisation as Arts Law with a team of talented and dedicated people who manage to achieve so much for Australia's artists. That is what Arts Law is all about - the artists and the organisations which support them. How boring would our lives be without the amazing talents of Australia's creators' We need to make sure that they can afford to put food on the table and that their rights are protected! Below is a snapshot of what we have achieved together this year.

  • Issue 3 - Bush band business 2012
    • Abstract: Everard, Delwyn
      In 2012, Artists in the Black (AITB) was invited again by Music NT to participate in Bush Bands Business (BBBiz). Held at the breathtaking Ross River Resort, Bush Bands Business is the professional development and mentoring program for the eight Indigenous bush bands chosen to perform at the Bash in Alice Springs during the annual Desert Festival. At BBBiz in 2011, we'd worked with the musicians explaining concepts of copyright and licensing. In 2012, the Blackstone, South East Desert Metal and Sunshine Reggae bands returned again, the last in a mentor role for the other bands, as well as five new bands including Sandridge from Borroloola and the Tjupi Band from Papunya (also in a mentor role). This time we worked on basic principles of contract using the various releases and agreements which each band member had to sign with the workshop organizer Music NT and event organizer Red Hot Arts as a real-life 'case study.' Under the shade of towering eucalypts with birdsong in the background, Artists in the Black explained the importance of understanding the meaning of documents before signing them and took the sixty musicians through the terms of the various agreements. We then provided individual sessions with each musician to answer any questions about the documents they were asked to sign. As Chairman of the Music NT board Cain Gilmour explained, AITB's lawyer was there not to assist Music NT or Red Hot Arts but to advise and assist the musicians. This is a fantastic demonstration of best practice when dealing with Indigenous musicians - ensuring they have access to independent legal advice. Congratulations Music NT!

      Whilst the World Intellectual Property Organisations (WIPO) has cast a positive light on the progress made at the 22nd Intergovernmental Committee (IGC) meeting in Geneva which was held from 9-13 July 2012, representatives from the developing countries and Indigenous peoples have a less optimistic view on the outcomes from the meeting.

  • Issue 3 - Music streaming services and licensing fees - how do artists
           fare'
    • Abstract: Szental, David
      The last 12 months have seen a huge influx of digital music-streaming services ("MSSs") such as Spotify into the Australian online music market. These services offer subscribers unlimited access to stream from an online library of millions of songs in exchange for a subscription fee (or in some circumstances, offer free access with advertisements). This model is a departure from the concept of "owning" music, and is set to redefine the way music is consumed. With such services already prospering in overseas markets and predicted to take over a significant share of the blossoming Australian digital music market over the next few years, concerns have been raised as to whether or not these services pay musicians fairly. This article will examine how MSSs licence music, how their revenue is distributed, and analyse whether they benefit or exploit musicians.

      Social media is a great way for artists and arts organisations to connect with people, promote their work and grow their reputation. However, recent developments in the world of online marketing have dramatically changed the way organisations and individuals should use social media websites as promotional tools.

      It's become fashionable for very wealthy patrons of the visual arts to share their extensive private collections by publishing glossy coffee table books lush with images of the artworks usually only seen by privileged visitors to the collector's private home.

    • Abstract: Everard, Delwyn
      Competitions provide a necessary forum for artists, especially those embarking on their artistic careers, to advertise and promote their particular talent to a wider audience and to seek and possibly secure future commissioning for their work. For all manner of artists, creating works for and entering competitions at one stage or another in their career is so prevalent as to be considered a rite of passage! Regardless of whether you are entering your first competition or your hundredth, the devil is likely to be found in the competition detail.

  • Issue 3 - So you want to self-publish (online edition)
    • Abstract: Teng, Joanne
      In the June 2012 edition of ART+law we ran the first of our two-part series on self-publishing and the things authors need to consider when seeking to self-publish their work. These included legal issues around the manuscript, working with others to produce a book, the obligations when distributing the printed work, as well as the difference between self-publishing and vanity publishing. In this second part, we now turn our attention from print to the digital realm, the e-book industry, and the issues to consider when self-publishing your work online.

    • Abstract: Laubi, Rebecca
      Stephen Digby joined the panel of volunteer lawyers assisting the Arts Law Centre of Australia (Arts Law) four years ago and has been an invaluable asset for the national community legal centre for the arts ever since. He is not only an expert for all matter of legal issues affecting artists but also extremely dedicated about assisting them. At Arts Law, we have long since lost count of how often he has accepted to review a document urgently or otherwise assist an artist in dire need of advice.

  • Issue 2 - Not made in Australia campaign
    • Abstract: Ayres, Robyn; Longhurst, Shannon
      The past few months have been a busy and exciting time for Solid Arts, a project funded by the Cultural Ministers Council, which is focused around creating a suite of resources on Indigenous Intellectual Property. The project has two main aims: firstly, to make arts-specific legal information more accessible to Indigenous artists and secondly, to increase awareness about Indigenous Intellectual Property amongst the general community, and consumers and commercial operators of Indigenous art. Stage Two of the project has seen the development and dissemination of a range of new materials directed at meeting these objectives.

      It's been said that everyone has a book in them, and nowadays it seems that everyone can write and show that book to the world. Arts Law receives many enquiries from writers seeking more information about self-publishing, or who run into problems when they seek to self-publish their work. In this two-part series, we take a look at what it means to self-publish both in print and online, and give an overview of some of the main issues to think about when self-publishing.
