In assignment 2 I talked about social networking, through blogs, facebook and twitter as a way in which artists connect with consumers. Because images are necessary to allow crafted items and designs to be shown the question should be asked how these artworks are protected from intellectual theft. So where do I start to research this subject, initially my searches have bought up books on law, this scares me a little, however I have reserved them for further perusal. I also have numerous journals and articles to read through I have listened to my very first spoken journal and have used cross search till I’m totally cross eyed 🙂 time for a break. They’ll be much more to follow on this subject very soon.
