VARA & Moral Rights in Visual Art

April 8, 2022 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Spray painting street art mural

Location: Zoom Webinar

Artists have an ongoing bond to their work that continues even after the physical work is sold. Join us as we discuss Moral Rights and how the Visual Artists Rights Act of 1990 (VARA) protects these rights. In this class, we will provide an overview of United States Copyright Law, the definition of moral rights, how VARA expands on copyright law, and the kinds of work that are protected by VARA.

Instructors: VLA Legal Externs
