Master of Laws (University of Helsinki, 2014). PhD student in copyright law (University of Helsinki).
My research topic is appropriation art from the perspective of Scandinavian copyright law. Appropriation art means that pre-existing objects or images are used with little transformation in order to create artworks; for example, the use of a copyright protected photo from a magazine in a collage painting. The aim for my research is to define appropriation art in a legal context and to identify problems that are related to appropriation art and copyright infringements, with regard to the rights of the copyright owner vis-à-vis the freedom of art and artistic expression.
