Ocean State Lawyers for the Arts
"Your talent is your art. Your art is your business. You know your art. Now learn your business." So goes the mantra of the Ocean State Lawyers for the Arts founded in 1984 to provide legal assistance to artists in Rhode Island. The group hosts an informative Web site that offers free legal information to help artists learn their legal rights and liabilities. Users may download articles that cover the bases from "Contract Negotiation" or "Unpublished Works and Fair Use" to "Internet-Law Court Decisions." Articles are not only non-lawyer-friendly, they're nicely-written, offering interesting, real-life examples to illustrate legal issues. The site also features a list of related links, plus reviews of "arts law self help" books.
