Book of critical texts edited by Daniel McClean and Karsten Schubert. "For artists, images are indeed 'dear' in both senses of the word: they are cherished, and also valuable. This indispensable compendium from the superb British publisher collects essays by international experts on many vital issues related to the ownership of art – who does it belong to, who can use it, what value does it have. The articles cross borders, considering international copyright conventions, fair use, the internet, concepts of originality, public access to art in museums and digitization, by international experts. A fascinating collection looking at issues from moral rights to the artist as a 'brand.'" -- publisher's statement.
