Copyright and appropriation art

Re : my post of 9 December.

I received a comment/suggestion to visit a website to find some answers on these topics. Thanks for this. Also quite timely, as I’ve registered for a seminar on copyright in The Netherlands which will take place on 31 January.

It is interesting to read that “Copyright duration is now 50 years after the death of the author in Canada, 95 years in the U.S.”

In NL the duration is 70 years…

Some interesting reading on http://appropriationart.ca/

The topic we will discuss in Amsterdam : rights of third parties. Examples in invitation :’Using Rayban sunglasses without permission of Rayban in a commercial could you give a lot a trouble’… ‘How about citing a photograph of Annie Leibovitz and photographing someone in a bathtub with milk’?
