Increase the market & cultural
value of your artists... without
more work

Copyright are the exclusive rights for artwork distribution and reproduction. With significant earning opportunities via usage royalties, art-licensing and IP-sales, copyright can generate even more profits than the sale of the physical artwork. Active copyright management also increases artist's cultural relevance, increasing market demand for their works.

Leading international galleries profit from copyright, with entire teams dedicated to it. Seminal gives you the tools to do the same. And because you've already documented the physicals, it requires no extra work.

Join Seminal

Publish your artist's copyright on
Seminal & receive free global protection

Most galleries don't have the
reach, systems or resources to
manage copyright (until Seminal)

Without gallery assistance, artists are left to manage copyright themselves. Their copyright either languishes or they have less time to create meaningful works. Seminal's intuitive platform and expert team enables galleries and representatives to become global rights administrators and effective brand managers for their artists - at no cost.
