First Annual Art Law Works-in-Progress Colloquium - Call for Participation
The first annual Art Law Works-in-Progress Colloquium is a one-day event which will provide a scholarly venue for works-in-progress in the art law space, intended primarily for a legal audience. It will be held this year on Friday, April 3, 2020 at New England Law | Boston.  

The heart of the colloquium will include a closed-door morning workshop for comments on draft articles and essays on art law (defined broadly in subject-matter, but legal-academic-scholarship in style). Each selected participant will briefly present the project, receive comments, and engage in a dialogue with other art law scholars.

The event will also include an afternoon open-to the-public panel with the following confirmed participants:

- Amy Adler (NYU Law)
- Christine Farley (American University Washington College of Law)
- Brian Frye (University of Kentucky Law)
- Laura Heymann (William & Mary Law School)

To be considered for the workshop, please send an abstract (up to approximately 300 words) describing a current art law scholarship project to Peter Karol (pkarol@nesl.edu) and Guy Rub (rub.1@osu.edu) by February 7, 2020. Selections will be announced by February 21, 2020. For each selected project, a treatment of the paper (8-15 pages) or a complete working draft will need to be submitted by March 13, 2020. There is no publication obligation. Participants must arrange for their own travel and accommodations.

All participants will be expected to read every draft paper in advance of the workshop.


Cambridge Handbook of Copyright in Street Art and Graffiti
Date: 30 January 2020
Time: 5-7PM
Place: Middlesex University The Burroughs London NW4 4BT United Kingdom
Speakers: Pure Evil, well known London street artist, as well as several contributors

In recent years, the number of conflicts related to the misuse of street art and graffiti has been on the rise around the world. Some cases involve claims of misappropriation related to corporate advertising campaigns, while others entail the destruction or 'surgical' removal of street art from the walls on which they were created. In this work, Enrico Bonadio brings together a group of experts to provide the first comprehensive analysis of issues related to copyright in street art and graffiti. Chapter authors shed light not only on the legal tools available in thirteen key jurisdictions for street and graffiti artists to object to unauthorized exploitations and unwanted treatments of their works, but also offer policy and sociological insights designed to spur further debate on whether and to what extent the street art and graffiti subcultures can benefit from copyright and moral rights protection.

No comments:

All comments must be moderated by a member of the IPKat team before they appear on the blog. Comments will not be allowed if the contravene the IPKat policy that readers' comments should not be obscene or defamatory; they should not consist of ad hominem attacks on members of the blog team or other comment-posters and they should make a constructive contribution to the discussion of the post on which they purport to comment.

It is also the IPKat policy that comments should not be made completely anonymously, and users should use a consistent name or pseudonym (which should not itself be defamatory or obscene, or that of another real person), either in the "identity" field, or at the beginning of the comment. Current practice is to, however, allow a limited number of comments that contravene this policy, provided that the comment has a high degree of relevance and the comment chain does not become too difficult to follow.
