Reprographic Rights vs Education: The Australian Experience
The Philippine Visual Arts Industry
Visual artists, like other copyright holders, are in a constant struggle for a fairer remuneration for their works. Because of the nature of visual arts as deriving value from that single work (or limited copies), visual artists do not have the opportunity to earn from a reproduction of their works unlike for example a book author. Thus, the right of resale is very important to visual artists.
There is currently no international treaty or instruments that set a standard for the resale rights. The Philippines, on the other hand, is one of several countries with the resale rights in its local law. Whether or not the law is properly implemented is uncertain.
For this reason, CISAC as the international federation of authors’ societies is invited to shed light on the artist and resale rights situation globally. Moreover, an experienced society, the DACS UK, will share practical experience dealing with artist and resale rights in their jurisdiction.

Fan Art: Inspiration or Copyright Infringement?
Fan art are works created by fans of a work of fiction and are often derived from characters in the latter. There is a thin line that separates when a fan art is merely “inspired” by the original work or when it is copyright infringement. This is a growing trend specially from younger community of artists.
The task of enlightening us on the ramifications of fanart has been given to this duo of international experts who have lectured on and have co-authored numerous publications on this topic.
