Definition Edit

United Kingdom Edit

An artistic work includes "a graphic work, photograph, sculpture or collage."[1]

Overview Edit

"A 'graphic work' [is] further defined to include paintings, drawings, diagrams, maps, charts, plans, engravings, etchings, lithographs, woodcuts or similar. The definition of a 'photograph' excludes stills from a film but includes slides, negatives and microfilm. Architectural works (including buildings of any kind), and works of artistic craftsmanship, such as jewellery or pottery, are also included. Copyright subsists in all of the above, regardless of artistic quality or craftsmanship."
