All of our featured artists retain the copyright to their work and it is unlawful to reproduce any of our art works. In the case of our Limited Edition Art Prints, Style Cube Ltd. has the exclusive, worldwide license to reproduce. The purchase of any piece of our art expressly does not confer any right to reproduce to the owner of the art work.
Copyright is an automatic right when an artist creates a work. To qualify, a work should be original and exhibit a degree of labour and skill. However, copyright protection is for the creation rather than the idea behind the creation. So another artist is still entitled to create their own original work around the same idea, provided they do not directly copy or adapt an existing work.
Titles and colours are not generally considered unique enough to be covered by Copyright Law.
The duration of copyright for artistic works is 70 years from the end of the calendar year in which the artist dies.
