Frequently asked questions

Since 2003, Artquest has been helping artists with their legal problems via our Artlaw service.

Individual artists living and working in England can send us a legal query, which we pass to our arts legal specialists Henry Lydiate and Lubna Gem Arielle.

In this section we present responses to some of their most frequently asked questions, covering many aspects of an artists career – contracts, copyright concerns and other general queries which we are asked most often.

Legal queries sent to Artquest may be rewritten (to preserve confidentiality) and placed in this section.
