Street Artists Will Obtain Compensation Via Copyrights

And if you’re one of them, thank the Wooster Collective. We certainly do. It is a step in the right direction.

Via the Collective:

The reality is that most street artists have no idea that their art work is being sold commercially. And when they do find out, they don’t have the financial resources to fight it. Because the large poster companies have thousands of images being licensed to them, and because they trust their suppliers, they often don’t know who the artist is in the image they are selling, nor are they aware that the artist isn’t being compensated from royalty payments made to the middlemen.

For years this practice of selling cropped street art photographs commercially has bothered us and countless artists.
