We're connecting the world to
art in the right way

The digital age has made art more accessible than ever... but also more exploitable. Works are being commercially used without permission, and with no attribution or earnings for artists. Seminal's global copyright platform ends this.

Our digital platform prevents image theft, streamlines art-licensing and facilitates the sale of copyright. Making art easily available to the world, while ensuring artists are rewarded for their work.

We built Seminal to serve the arts

For too long, copyright has been an overlooked asset in the art world. We're empowering artists and rights holders to capture the full value of their creations.

We're proud to support these artists amongst others in maximizing their global reach, safeguarding their creations, and amplifying their earnings with copyright.
