About the Author

For over thirty years Michael Jones has taught sports, entertainment and art law at the University of Massachusetts Lowell. Drawing upon his experience as a noted professor of law, trial court judge and professional artist he developed an international reputation as one of the foremost authorities on the interplay between copyright law and the rights of artists. Professor Jones has lectured at leading universities and museums throughout the world on copyright and moral right issues facing visual artists. Numerous museums and visual rights societies have sought his counsel on topics ranging from how to craft an ethical acquisition and provenance policy regarding Nazi-era art to who owns the rights to reproduce Alberta Korda's famous photograph of Che Guevara. Besides serving as an advisor to curators, visual fine artists, art students, university professors, and museum directors, he spent 10 years as a member of the board of trustees for the New Hampshire Institute of Art. Jones has penned dozens of academic journals related to art law. His most recent texts include Rules of the Game: Sports Law (2016), Intellectual Property Law Fundamentals (2015), and Timeless: The Photography of Rowland Scherman (co-edited with his wife Christine Jones) (2014). In addition, he has excelled as an artist. For the last four summer Olympic Games, including the 2016 Rio Olympics, he created the official USOC poster for the sport of triathlon. After the Beijing Olympics he painted Michael Phelps' portrait. His posters, paintings and sketches have been exhibited at the U.S. Embassy in China, Hong Kong Museum of Art, International Olympic Committee Museum, Sports Museum of Boston, Barcelona Olympic Museum, The Whistler House Museum, University of Baltimore Museum, Denison University's Art Museum, and the Cape Cod Museum of Art.


[Jones] offers a good introduction to the subject in a work aimed at art educators, students, gallery owners, curators, museum trustees and professional staff and professional artists themselves.... The work concludes with useful (to US readers) coverage of grants and foundations, returning to the fiduciary issues raised at the start that involve art and museum professionals and trustees. A useful work, then, with application above all in the USA. * s *
