Art and Copyright: Blake Morgan partner Simon Stokes authors third edition of leading copyright book

Posted on 11th March 2021

Simon Stokes, Blake Morgan Commercial Partner, has completed the third edition of his book ‘Art and Copyright’ during lockdown. First published in 2001, the book has established itself as a leading text in the intellectual property field.

The book is essential reading for those involved in art law and for intellectual property lawyers involved with the exploitation or sale of artistic works. It is also an invaluable source for intellectual property academics, researchers, law students, curators, publishers, artists, gallery owners, auction houses, and those developing and running online art platforms, databases and technology to transact in art.

In order to reflect the current marketplace, Simon has updated and revised the third edition of Art and Copyright to deal with a lot of new technology, including:

  • The relationship between designs law and artistic works
  • EU and Brexit developments
  • AI-created works
  • Graffiti and other non-conventional works
  • Blockchain and rights management
  • NFT works (currently a hot topic in the art market)
  • Orphan works
  • New exceptions to copyright
  • Digital copyright, art databases and online platforms
