In this episode of the ArtTactic Podcast, we’re joined by Ted Feder, President of the Artists Rights Society, a copyright, licensing, and monitoring organization for visual artists. First, Ted discusses the role of the ARS within the art world as well as the new challenges it is presented with in this digital age. Then, Ted details ARS’ stance on the increasing use of appropriation within Contemporary art. As a staunch supporter of bringing the resale royalty to the US, Ted updates us on the status of his efforts and also responds to some of the arguments used by critics of the royalty.
