Melbourne Seminar

Arts Law is very pleased to be partnering with the Australian Government Solicitor to present a seminar in Melbourne about how the new Personal Properties Securities Act affects artists. This is a significant change in the law and we encourage you to attend.

The Personal Property Securities Act 2009 (Cth) established the Personal
Property Security Register (PPSR). The PPSR enables people to register their
interest in personal property. This may be relevant for artists who deliver
works without payment, for example to a commercial gallery for the
purposes of sale or on loan for an exhibition.


This seminar will outline the main features of the PPS Act and the PPSR and
how it operates, with a focus on how artworks and intellectual property rights are treated.

Panelists are:
Mieke Dixon, Senior Lawyer, AGS
Rebecca Laubi, Senior Solicitor, Arts Law Centre of Australia

Date: Tuesday 22 May 2012
Time: 5.45pm, for a 6pm start, until 7.30pm
Location: AGS Melbourne, Level 21, 200 Queen Street

Registration: Numbers are limited.
