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?

Early in the transaction is where information and advocacy can make all the difference.
