Exhibition Or Display Of Art Work

According to the Copyright Act of 1976, a display of an art work does not constitute publication.  For example, the public display of a model home is not considered as “publication” of the home’s architectural drawings.  If a building in which an architectural work embodied is constructed or located in a public place, or a place ordinarily visible from a public place, copyright does not include the right to prevent the making, distributing, or public display of pictures, paintings, photographs, or other pictorial representations of the work.  The owners of a building embodying an architectural work may make alterations to such building, or destroy such building without the consent of the author or copyright owner of the architectural work.
