Contents:
Permissions, a love story -- An admission -- Bleeding dollars and euros and pounds and yen -- What is copyrights? -- The copy trade and the public domian -- The forbidden image: museums and an empire of signs -- Sidebar: artists' moral rights -- Sidebar: copyrighting architecture -- Those toes: privacy woes and the Duchess of York -- Sidebar: events and performances -- Monks in faraway places, or Latin lives! -- Fair use -- Doing and saying whatever it takes in the name of scholarship -- A society of ownership: see America -- A supplicants's manifesto -- What did it cost? A summary of fees for this book.
Summary: If a picture is worth a thousand words, then it's a good bet that at least half of those words relate to the picture's copyright status. Art historians, artists, and anyone who wants to use the images of others will find themselves awash in byzantine legal terms, constantly evolving copyright law, varying interpretations by museums and estates, and despair over the complexity of the whole situation. Here, on a white--not a high--horse, Susan Bielstein offers her decades of experience as an editor working with illustrated books. In doing so, she unsnarls the threads of permissions that have ensna.
