Anybody who can fake a painting (or issue a print) can also create a COA, so I don't see how having one helps the purchaser. An art dealer, once the original artist has become famous, may be able to recognise the artists style of COA and so know which is fake, but the average purchaser of art from emerging artists won't.


If you're in the USA, check what you need to do for 'copyright' to have any real meaning. I've seen many mentions of a requirement to register your copyright before you have any meaningful legal protection the US. I've not bothered to look into the details as I'm not there.

I'm sorry to hear of your copywright problem. It's sad to see that some people have no concience or ethics when it comes to making money. Please let us know if you have found a solution.

If you are in the US you might want to try Volunteer Lawyers for the ARts. Perhaps they can give you some guidance.

Thanks for that link mermaidsue. Not being in the US ourselves, we're not too aware of the laws there.

Wow.. I'm so sorry that this happened to you, I can't imagine what you must be feeling. Definitely please let us know if you find an answer. That lawyer group for the arts looks promising.
Best,

I've heard from a couple of sources that art dealers and auction houses (not sure about galleries) look at CoAs askance and automatically suspect a forgery when a piece comes with a CoA.

The volunteer arts lawyers link looks awesome! I wonder if you asked around at galleries or museums if they could offer you any advice.

I'm sorry you have to deal with this. :/ Another artist friend of mine has been fighting with Ebay for a year or so over the same issues. Unfortunately while Ebay may delete the occasional listing, they don't seem to do much beyond that.
