Artlaw & Artquest
Did you know that if you're a professional visual artist or craftsperson living and working in London you can obtain free legal advice from Artlaw? This is an e-mail service only. Subjects include: copyright, contracts, licensing, moral rights, image rights, censorship, import and export, health and safety and any other element relating to a professional artist's or craftsperson's career. But first check out the Artlaw website (title link) which contains over 200 legal articles written by Henry Lydiate - barrister and art law specialist - for Art Monthly magazine. As these articles are freely available online, they could be of help to UK artists who don't qualify for the e-mail service. Artlaw is part of Artquest (CLICK) the online advice centre for London artists, covering everything from seminars to studio space. If you're an art graduate embarking on your professional career, Artquest is a must.
