Current Advocacy Opportunities

Stolen Art  & Creative Works

Recently we have been experiencing an influx of reports from our community about artwork and creative work being stolen and reproduced for sale without permission in mass quantities. We are seeking advocates who have expertise in art law, artists rights, intellectual property, royalties, and copyright permissions. In addition, those experts who are well-versed and skilled in liaising and analyzing deals would be most beneficial to our community.
