About Contract

Arts Law advocates for the adoption of best practice standards in contractual dealings between artists and third parties in the context of sale of art works, public commissions, contracts for services, competitions, festivals and other situations where a legal agreement must be signed. In particular, Arts Law advocates for retention of control over copyright by the creator, transparency of terms, and contractual protection and respect for moral rights and Indigenous Cultural Intellectual Property. Arts Law encourages those dealing with artists to observe best practice and applicable protocols in their contracts.  See Arts Law’s Best Practice Document Review Service for parties dealing with artists.
