ATASDA NSW is delighted to introduce guest presenter, Mr Ian McDonald, as part of our Twilight Series.
Ian is a Special Counsel with Simpsons Solicitors in Sydney, specialising in copyright and other entertainment and intellectual property areas of law. Before joining Simpsons, Ian worked for many years at the Australian Copyright Council. He has published widely on copyright and moral rights issues and also lectures at the College of Fine Arts (now UNSW Art + Design) in cultural property, ethics and law.
This is an information session suitable for all artists and crafts people who are interested in exhibiting and/or selling their work. It will also be helpful to teacher and students of design, art or textiles.
Some of the topics to be discussed include:
  • Copyright Issues arising for artists
  • Using text, poetry, lyrics, etc in artworks
  • Using purchased stencils, stamps or images in collaged or mixed media pieces
  • Using photographs and image transfer techniques in artwork
  • Appropriation, what is and is not considered to be appropriation and when does it become a copyright issue?
  • Responsibility of the artist
  • Responsibility of the organisation hosting an exhibition
  • Using work developed in workshops for exhibition or sale 
  • Intellectual property of tutor workshop content

This will be a great talk for all and we hope to see you there.
