collection of street art photos

 

In this research project, Professor Pascale Chapdelaine applies the most commonly accepted  theoretical justifications of copyright  in a Canadian context to consider the extent to which graffiti and street art should be protected by copyright law. She looks at the interests of street artists through anthropological studies, at the interests of the property owners on which the graffiti or street art is displayed , as well as at the public interest and at how those interests converge or compete with one another.

Raffaella Rullo (Windsor Law Dual JD, 2018) provides research assistance on this project.
