Purchase of ART or CRAFT Does NOT Purchase the Copyright or the Right to Copy

With the rise of scanning, 3-D printing, maker-bot and a host of classes, the growth of craft has a new maker audience that wants to make without design skills or confidence in their creativity. So where do they find their ideas? You know....they copy.

Have you considered adding a clause to your sales receipt, commission contract, or consignment contract specific to this issue?

 "Purchase of this work does not include the copyright or right to copy this design."

Early in the transaction is where information and advocacy can make all the difference.
Think about the issues. Read this post:
