Protecting Art in the Street: A Guide to Copyright in Street Art and Graffiti
Published by Dokument Press
5"x8", 72p, perfect bound
There has recently been a sharp increase in cases where corporations have been sued by street and graffiti artists because their artworks had been used and exploited without the artists' authorisation, for example in advertising campaigns, as backdrops in promotional videos, or as decorating elements of products. This trend shows and confirms that these forms of art are vulnerable. They are actually more exposed to unauthorised exploitation (and destruction as well) than works of fine art, because they are placed in the public eye.
Protecting Art in the Street aims at guiding artists through a short journey into copyright issues of street art and graffiti.
By using words and images, this book tries to give short answers to some basic legal questions that street artists and graffiti writers often ask.
