Intellectual Property and the Arts


The Committee on Intellectual Property (CIP) monitors and interprets copyright legislation for the benefit of CAA’s various constituencies. In so doing, it seeks to offer educational programs and opportunities for discussion and debate in response to copyright legislation affecting educators, scholars, museum professionals, and artists.

Education is essential for informed communication. The committee hopes that the resources presented in this section will answer your questions about intellectual property and inform your discussions and debates.
