Top 13 Art Law Disputes of 2019

Listed in no particular order, these lucky stories and disputes certainly caused a bit of controversy in the art industry. One can also say that this abridged list is a testament to the growing number of lawsuits and legal issues in the art industrial complex.

Overall I think this list pretty much covers the top legal issues without rehashing the usual suspects and disputes (read: copyright and appropriation). There’s a little estate law, speech, public space, moral rights, and gifts, but also a bit of “woke” propaganda, labor, resale royalties, contracts, and yes, even a little copyright. If you think there’s a story (or two) that I missed, or if you know of any updates to these stories, feel free to email me.
