Art Copyright

Your creative work is immediately copyrighted the moment you make it. Any author of an original work owns the copyright to that work. Only you have the right to derive works, such as prints, from your own work. This right remains with you even after your work is sold. The new owner has bought your work but not its copyright, unless you have transferred it via contract.

Artists getting more press with a press release

When an editor or a journalist receives a release in their inbox or finds it on an online press release database, they understand they will not have exclusive rights to this news and that, in fact, this release has been sent to dozens or hundreds or even thousands of contacts. It is also understood that if a publication or blog wants to use the content of this press release, they can borrow it word for word. This is why it’s important to spend hours poring over your release, crafting quotes and fact checking your information.
