Conference: Contemporary Art and Copyright: Copyright or Right to Copy?
Avid Clancco reader and art law attorney Elisa Vittone just e-mailed us with information concerning a conference on copyright and contemporary art, which she claims is the “first conference in Italy concerning the relationship between Contemporary Art and Law.” Among the participants are the Director of Artissima, the Curator of the Musée d’Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris, the Director of Contemporary Art Department of Christie’s, the Head of Hogarth Chambers London, the President of Turin Court of Appeal. The conference, Contemporary Art and Copyright: Copyright or right to copy?, will take place on March 11, 2010, in Turin, Italy.
From the press release:
In 2010, the National Gallery, London and the Musée d’Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris organised exhibits, which called concepts of uniqueness, originality and authenticity into question.?How can the law settle this? How far is artists’ freedom willing to go? Does a uniform application of resale right really operate in the EU? ?What impact will the Dalì decision of the European Court of Justice have in the EU State Members? For the first time, SIAE (Italian collecting society) and DACS (the English one) will talked about the much-discussed resale rights discipline in EU.
