[BKARTS] copyright fees



Val,
As pointed out at the Print Alliance website
http://www.printalliance.org/resources/re_copyright.html, you can copyright
any number of visual arts works for one fee. Simply name the collection
(e.g. "work from the first quarter of 2003") and use as many continuation
sheets as needed to list the items in the collection. I haven't looked into
that for literary works, but you can check for a text equivalent at the
Copyright Office at the Library of Congress http://www.loc.gov/copyright. By
sending in a registration once per quarter, all of your artwork will be
protected within three month and thus receive full rights (including the
ability to recover legal fees); total cost = 4 x $30 = $120 per year. Anyone
who wants to put his/her work into the public domain can do so. But artists
who want to protect their work, for financial and/or artistic reasons, have
the right to do so, too.
