An Editorial On the Term “Artist” In Copyright.

There have been many copyright debates over the years, in various areas of copyright and technology, all drawing different conclusions on the issue of these topics. Among them, there were countless lively debates on whether file-sharing has a positive or negative effect on art.

The term of artist has never been precisely defined in the law, and that was probably the reason for Drew Wilson to write an editorial on this issue. The first notable event in the area of artists in copyright was when the Radiohead released their album “In Rainbows” online, allowing their fans to pay for it whatever they wanted. This move was considered a revolutionary one, though thousands of artists have been doing the same before the Radioheads. Of course, the reaction of those smaller musicians was that they have never been “artists” in the sense of copyright.

Meanwhile, the definition of the word “artist” given in the dictionary is something like somebody who creates art in any form which can be experienced by another person. Although this definition is quite cut and dry, the explanations given by the Google search results, reiterated the same in a bit wider manner: “Someone, whose creative work features sensitivity and imagination”, or “creating art, practicing and demonstrating it.”

The only thing not explained in the definition relates to the issue with Radiohead – is there any level of success set that someone has to achieve to become an “artist”? In other words, is the written definition of an “artist” sufficient to describe the person as an artist or are there other requirements to receive this title, like having their work played a certain number of times on the radio?

Still, the level of celebrity can’t be a definite determination for “artist” either. Some famous artists start from bands gathering in the garage, while some become an instantaneous star just because they have money for recordings and promotion. The scenario is different, and sometimes it’s all about talent. Though, there are tons of extremely talented artists out there the world would never hear if not download their works for free from BitTorrent.

In other words, the term “artist” is not what is achieved by fame and fortune. Instead, it’s a term that is automatically given to people living out what the very term “artist” represents.

menahunie avatarMy take is an "artist" is someone or a group that produces something audio or visual; or what ever our senses can enjoy.
I'll put money down someone proves that the RIAA or MPAA ever wrote a song or movie?
