CIADESIGN's curator insight, January 9, 2013 4:39 AM

Copyright law is a tangle. Even copyright attorneys agree that copyright infringement is not only difficult to prove, but it's rarely worth pursuing in the legal system [for a number or reasons].

 

I'm speaking from experience.

 

However, having the knowledge this post provides regarding what & what not to do can save you a lot of trouble.

The Metropolitan Museum of Art - Embroidered Sampler

The Metropolitan Museum of Art - Embroidered Sampler | Best archival sites | Scoop.it
This is one of three similar samplers (the other two are in private collections) that can be traced to girls who lived in the Franklin/Norwich area of Connecticut.

 

Note: database fields of basis information about the date, location, culture, mediium, dimensions, classification, credit line, and unique identifier (accession number). Also: description, signatures, inscriptions, markings; provenance. Again, it lists who, what, where, when. Provides a timeline of art history for context. Additional photographic views.

 

Social feature: one can share on favorite social mediums, and one can add to personal database ('add to MyMet') which one receives upon joining.

Brooklyn Museum: Browse Collections

Brooklyn Museum: Browse Collections | Best archival sites | Scoop.it

 

There is a lot of interaction possible on the Brooklyn Museum website. A simple search of Collections brings a page of thumbnails with terse descriptions. Each is linked to a detail page, which is rich with social sharing as well as metadata about the object. Related searches are nearby. 

 

Interesting social feature: the "posse" lets you save your own tags, comments, and favorites, which are displayed with your attribution.
