Have you ever played recorded music during a scene change, projected a picture you didn't take, or sent a name-brand soda can onstage as a prop? Have you designed a set based on someone's artwork, or blocked a scene the same way as another production? Most artists have, whether they remember it or not.
In today’s culture, new art increasingly borrows from preexisting work, references popular culture, or incorporates real-world people, brands, or products. Unfortunately, few artists or managers have ready access to a lawyer in their organization, or even know someone to turn to when questions arise. This session will outline the contours of what artists absolutely can or cannot do and arm the viewer with knowledge and examples to understand the grey area in between.
