Cases and Materials
By: Leonard DuBoff, Sherri Burr, and Michael Murray

Just as opinions over what constitutes “great art” are subjective, the laws that govern its creation and ownership also have been left up to personal interpretation in many cases. For this reason, the authors compiled Art Law: Cases and Materials, an exceptional casebook designed to teach the basics of art law and enlighten artists about their rights. This book’s ten chapters focus on developing and defining the legal contours for protecting art. Among the many pertinent topics examined are legal definitions of art, copyright protection, cultural property, and moral and economic rights. More than 180 cases are referenced throughout the book, including high-profile cases such as Namath v. Sports Illustrated, Hustler Magazine v. Falwell, and FCC v. Pacifica Foundation, among others. In a thorough and interesting manner, Art Law: Cases and Materials looks at the issues that will influence the creators and disseminators of these powerful forms of expression.
