New Bedford Art Law Information

Artists Must Protect Their Work

Artists may view themselves as free spirits who exist beyond the crude demands of business life, but they need protection from fraud, theft, and bad business practices too.  No matter what kind of artist you are, you must protect what you make from unethical people who may exploit you or steal your work outright. Also, if you sell your works, you need to understand accounting, contracts, billing, taxes, and copyrights.

Artists Legal Options

If you are an artist, you should consult with a New Bedford artist attorney to ensure your work is protected, help you copyright or trademark your creations, develop contracts for your work; and address the tax consequences of being an independent contractor.
