New online shopfront for Arts Law

The Arts Law Centre of Australia (Arts Law), the national community legal centre for the arts has a new website giving artists easy access to information about important legal issues.

Senior solicitor with the service, Suzanne Derry, said it was important for artists to have the right information about copyright, moral rights, contracts, insurance and liability.

‘The digital age opens up many opportunities for artists, but it can also be a minefield. Just because an image is on Google images, doesn’t mean that it’s freely available for use.

‘Contracts can be a particularly onerous area, and we have sample contracts that can be purchased, but people can always contact us via the website for more information,’ Ms Derry said.
