Artistic justice: Pro bono program aims to help artists with legal issues (access required)

From contracts to copyright infringement to business plans, such artists now can go online to get assistance from the S.C. Volunteer Lawyers for the Arts, a program that kicked off in October. "We think this program has been a long time coming," said Harriett Green, director of visual arts at the S.C. Arts Commission.
