The Internet has forever changed the art world. On one hand, it's a great place to share your art, turn your creativity into a business and garner a loyal following. On the other hand, the Internet can make it easy for your work to be copied, without you getting a cent.
From Etsy and Kickstarter to our favourite independent stores and meme accounts, the confusing world of copyright affects a whole lot of people and their finances.
So what is an artist to do? In this episode, we explore just that. We're joined by Nikita Margarita, the creative force behind the boutique jewellery studio Doodad and Fandango; and Sean Graham, a financial services lawyer experienced with intellectual property, trademark and copyright work. Join us as we explore the world of art theft from the perspectives of the artist and of the law.

- People are slamming Miley Cyrus for allegedly stealing an Instagram influencer's feminist cake design
- How do you protect your work on the Internet?
