Copyright is your most valuable
Asset... but it's seriously neglected

Copyright is the exclusive right over artwork distribution and reproduction. It's produced with any original artwork, so almost every artist has it. But it's tragically underutilized.

With significant earning opportunities via usage royalties, art-licensing and IP-sales, copyright can even generate more profits for artists than the sale of their physical artwork.

We've solved the art world's
greatest challenge & increased
artist earnings

For centuries, the art world has fended off fakes and forgeries.... but the digital age has made unauthorized copies more prevalent than ever. Artists are seeing their work illegally used in e-commerce and digital advertising, receiving neither credit or compensation.

This rampant infringement reduces the market value of artist's works, hurts their reputation and violates creative integrity. Seminal is fighting back.

Sell more than just The physical...
even When The original has
changed hands

Just like musicians raking in millions by selling their IP rights, your art's value goes beyond just the physical. Sell full or partial copyright ownership over single works or collections and maintain control over the copyright. Seminal's platform and team of legal, finance and art experts provide a turnkey transaction service that captures the full value of your copyright and ensures responsible stewardship.

Copyright ownership doesn't transfer with the sale of the physical. So you're still able to sell the IP rights to pieces that have found new homes.
