Abstract:

  • The impact of electronic technology on the intellectual property rights of artists is currently the subject of worldwide debate. We are at an important crossroads in defining intellectual property rights that will have a direct impact on the way we create and disseminate electronic art in the future. This paper takes a look at legal precedents involving copyright ownership and shows how current copyright legislation may not adequately protect the intellectual property rights of artists working with electronic media.
