Professor Guy Rub co-authors op-ed for Art Forum discussing resale contract law

April 5, 2021 | Media News

An expert in the areas of intersection of art, copyright, and commercial law, Professor Guy Rub recently co-authored an article for Art Forum titled, “Royalty Check.”

“The decision of whether to place restrictions on an artwork’s buyer isn’t trivial. It might cause some buyers to pay less or to refuse to purchase the work altogether. It is a decision that should not be taken lightly. However, it is one that artists—including those working in a medium as traditional as paint on canvas—should be able to make. The law empowers them to do so.”
