Webinar: IP Issues for Commercial Property Owners: How to Avoid Paying Millions to Graffiti Artists

Artwork on buildings can be protected under a number of intellectual property regimes, including copyright or trade dress. Recently, graffiti artists have successfully sued property owners for millions of dollars the removal of graffiti in violation of a relatively new form of IP in the United States: “Artist Rights.ā€ Most famously, a group of graffiti artists recently obtained damages of $6.7 million in a lawsuit under the Visual Artist Rights Act for the whitewashing of their graffiti by property owners at ā€œ5Pointzā€ in New York. The webinar will examine the various types of protection afforded artwork on buildings; the 5Pointz case and other recent cases involving artist rights; and precautions all property owners should take before allowing artwork to be created or destroyed on their buildings.
