Copyright Awareness Week

A person who creates a copyrightable work has not only the right to protect the original work, but also the right to protect and control any works that are variations on the original work. These variations are called "derivative works" and they include making modifications, adaptations or other new uses of a work, or translating the work to another media. Therefore, if you find a work that you like, for example a photograph or sculpture, you cannot simply change it to another media (i.e., a painting) and call it your own. You need to include a credit to the original creator and identify your source for obtaining the original work. The following slides include four legal cases that have to do with derivative works issues in the visual arts.
