Book News Reviews
The subtitle both summarizes the content nicely and also suggests why one might be interested in the volume. Writing from a base of experience representing art, craft and design clients as well as musicians and publishers, attorney/author Stimm provides clear legal information and solutions for common challenges to maintaining a successful art career. Although caution is suggested in going forward without consulting an attorney for specific problems, the text covers a broad understanding of these anticipated problem areas: pricing and selling; studio considerations; going online; hiring workers and sales reps; business forms and legal liability; copyright, patents, trade dress, names and trademarks; licensing; taxes; lawyers, contracts, and lawsuits. An appendix instructs on how to use an included CD-ROM to prepare important contracts and forms. Annotation ©2010 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
