What is Copyright?

Copyright is the right to copy or reproduce an artwork and consequently sell, exhibit, etc. If you are an artist who has created an original work of art (it could be a drawing, an oil painting, a photograph, a digital art file, etc.), you own the copyright of your creation.

According to section 106 of the 1976 Copyright Act., as a copyright holder, you can do the following:

- reproduce your work, for example as a Giclee;
- create derivative works based upon original work;
- sell your prints, or licence your image files;
- sell your copyright to a publisher or share it with the publisher or another artist;
- display the originals and prints publicly
