IN DEFENSE OF THE RIGHTS OF ARTISTS  

 
 

Artists:

Artists are the visionaries of society, reflecting and interpreting the past and molding the futures of our cultures. We possess inalienable rights: the right to own our work, to retain copyright to derivative works, to have the right of free speech in voice and form, and to be given credit for our creative works.

We long to involve our art in the mainstream of the culture. We strive to inspire and evoke. We seek exposure for our creative efforts. We demand fair return for our efforts. We refuse to be taken for granted.
