This is the first book to specifically examine in detail the intellectual property rights protecting artistic works and artists rights generally in the United Kingdom. The focus is on the UK but where appropriate other relevant jurisdictions are discussed. Recent European developments and the evolving UK case law in this area including the recent House of Lords decision in Designers Guild v Russell Williams are also addressed. The Internet and related intellectual property rights to copyright and moral rights are considered as well,including the law of passing off, breach of confidence, trade marks and domain name protection. This updated paperback edition also contains a copy of the droit de suite directive. "..gems of information...detailed references to an extensive body of case law on the copyright protection of artistic works...written in an easy to read and often colourful style."-Claire Coleman (Copyright World)"a wonderful piece of luck for everyone in the art, art publishing or promotion business. This is the book that you must read before you think of reproducing anything in any form, however sure you are it is a really good idea. The law society should ban this book: it is too good...The book is a must. It will help prevent expensive mistakes and is also enjoyable reading."-John Brandler (Art Business Today)"the book is interesting, comprehensive and accessible...Art and Copyright is likely to appeal to both lawyers with and interest in the law as it affects artistic pursuits and to those non-lawyers who create or deal with art."-Cecilia Minogue (Copyright Reporter)"For any lawyer or law student wanting to develop an expertise in art law, this book is an excellent primer/starting point."-Henry Lydiate (Art Monthly)"contains many facts which would be fascinating to art professionals, including curators, gallery owners, dealers, artists, photographers and publishers, as well as copyright lawyers"-Gillian Haggart (European Intellectual Property Review)"All the key issues that define the scope of present debates are covered amply and reliably, often by citing the most recent U.K. case material."-Karsten Schubert (The Burlington Magazine)"For the non-specialist, reading law books can be like eating carpet tiles, but Stokes's book is one of the all too rare exceptions to that ordeal. If you are expecting a tedious trek through a tundra of legalese, you'll be pleasantly surprised by how readable and absorbing this subject can be when you have the right sherpa to guide you."-TF (www.thesaurus.co.uk)
