1. BODY ART/TATTOOS.
Do you have a tattoo or some other form of “body art” on your skin? If not, what is the most memorable tattoo you have seen? (100 words.) Either way, feel free to upload a picture.
2. COPYRIGHTS IN TATTOOS.
In your opinion, can you own or otherwise copyright a tattoo? Explain. (100 words.) Here is some background information (Links to an external site.), and here is a link from the U.S. Copyright Office explaining copyrights (Links to an external site.).
3. ALLOCATION OF PROPERTY RIGHTS IN TATTOOS.
Let’s assume for the sake of argument that tattoos can be copyrighted. In the absence of an agreement between the tattoo artist and the client (the person who is paying for the tattoo), who should own the legal rights to the tattoo: the tattoo artist or the client? Explain. (100 words.) Hint: The Professor just wants your well-reasoned opinion on this question.
