The Art of Copyrights: What You Need to Know About Your Legal Rights and the Art You Create

On vacation, you browse through a local art gallery and purchase a small painting as a memento of your trip. You hang the painting in your home, and find that you just love the painting and the ambience that it evokes. You decide that you would like to have note cards made of the painting – what a wonderful way to keep in touch with friends while sharing your love of the painting. And your friends respond about the vibrancy of the artwork, asking if you could sell them some of the notecards for their own use.

No problems, right?

Research in the humanities asks the large questions about culture, literature, philosophy, and language in an effort to illuminate the human experience. It explores humanity from the ancient to the modern. Although humanities research often is a solitary venture, the work is part of the ongoing dialogue that stretches back millennia and across cultures: what does human life mean?

  • How do you protect them?
  • What if you want to use someone else’s music?
    • For a homework assignment? Or a classroom performance? 
    • Or to showcase the amazing work that your department produces?

And a path to finding the answers:
