Exporting Art from Canada: a legal perspectiveThis is a two-part series. Friday session (Part 1) runs from 4-7pm and Saturday session (Part 2) from 10am-1pm.

In this program we will explore how to sell your art (music, film/tv, fashion designs, photos, drawings, paintings, sculptures, jewellery, etc.) around the world from a legal perspective.  We will go over the basics of intellectual property law in Canada, with a focus on copyright law, and examine how the law in Canada is different from other countries.  We will study the importance of preparing your intellectual property for worldwide exploitation, ensuring its proper protection (by way of contract and otherwise).  Finally, we will survey different legal avenues for exploiting your art around the world, including navigating some of the world’s different legal systems applicable to art exploitation. The workshop will focus on real life examples, and students will be examining the content of various types of legal arrangements to facilitate the exploitation of art.
