Re: Castingsof Rosslyn Carvings
You are correct that the cavalry probably will not work. However a bit of
contract law might providing that there was a contract and that can be
verbal although it is more easy to prove if it is in writing naturally. The
facts seem a bit bizzar from the legal perspective in that the party
contracting with may be individuals or corporate.
You are only semi correct when a second company takes over the assets of
another, it may not assume any liabilities, which is in contrast to a
transfer or sale of shares. Of course this assumes that there is a
corporation and not an individual, however one wonders if the airfares were
personal or corporate and whether this was in writing.
Now the right to sell reproduction is another moot point and depends on the
nature of the contract, the rights of the contracting party and the artistic
rights which here are rather ancient. As you now music, art and sculpture
carry slightly differing IP rights, and copyright, trademarks and related
rights do not last in perpetuity hence the copyrights for many of the
classics have entered the public domaine eons ago. That said one can
contract for the rights to take a casting and this can be governed by
Just a word from the 'side' bar.
