LADY LYNDY SORCERESS OF LIGHT & THE AWARD OF PURE ENLIGHTENMENT

CASTING SPELLS OF LOVE & JOY
WITH THE MAGICK OF THE SUMMER NIGHT


Each of the Four Sacred Seasons: Spring Equinox, Summer Solstice, Autumnal Equinox & Winter Solstice, Dear Lady Lyndy will present for your viewing pleasure answers to your questions received through blogging comments &/or email.

This Summer Season is hot & dry in California & water conservation is mandatory. The hot topics seem to always contain questions of proper investing & savings in this unpredictable economy. Lady Lyndy's seasonal Summer Topic is: 21st CENTURY OOAK HALLOWEEN ART INVESTMENTS VS. 21st CENTURY NON~OOAK HALLOWEEN ART COLLECTIBLES...

DEAR LADY LYNDY,
What is the difference between a 21st Century OOAK Halloween art investment VS. a 21st Century NON~OOAK Halloween art collectible?
GENE FROM MANHATTAN ~ NEW YORK

DEAR GENE FROM MANHATTAN ~ NEW YORK,
According to research & history, a 21st Century OOAK Halloween art investment is an art work that is 99.9% sure to retain it's value & will in time go up in value. AND a 21st Century NON~OOAK Halloween art collectible is 99.9% uncertain to retain it's value or if will ever go up in value. On the other hand, Vintage NON~OOAK Halloween art collectibles continue to go up in value. Vintage meaning 40 to 50 years old or older.

* EXCEPTION ~ Some reproduction Halloween art created by well known usually published artists can gain value & become an investment collectible. Especially if the company like Hallmark or Bethany Lowe Designs is also well known & the item is quality produced in Ltd. Edition.

****************************

DEAR LADY LYNDY,
How can one tell if they are buying OOAK Halloween art that will become an investment?
BEWITCHED, BOTHERED & BEWILDERED

DEAR BEWITCHED, BOTHERED & BEWILDERED,
It's not easy, do your homework. If the artist has been published or has a strong following & their art is gaining when resold (secondary market) or is gaining value on the first market than this may will be a wonderful OOAK Halloween art investment.

****************************

DEAR LADY LYNDY,
Why do some artists say you can't resell their OOAK art work?
MR. CATMAN

DEAR MR. CATMAN,
That's inappropriate & they really cannot stop you legally from reselling their OOAK art work. But they can legally stop one from copying their OOAK art work & selling it. That's copyright infringement & can be litigated in a court of law.

****************************

DEAR LADY LYNDY,
What year is the cut off date in the 20th century that one can copy an art work before it becomes infringement?
STAN JACKOWITZ

DEAR STAN JACKOWITZ,
Any work of art that was published before 1923 is in the public domain.

****************************

DEAR LADY LYNDY,
How can an artist protect their OOAK art work from being copied by a foreign country for commercial use?
BLACK SPIDER CAT

DEAR BLACK SPIDER CAT,
Almost every country has copyright forms an artist can file to protect their intellectual work ~ art work. Some can even be filed online with the country's government offices & embassies. If you don't file with a foreign country to protect your art work, than you have no protection. Unfortunately, many foreign commercial knockoffs have been seen for sale in USA brick & mortar stores & online.

Looking forward to the cooling Autumnal Equinox & your questions received through blogging comments &/or email.
Cosmic Blessings, Lady Lyndy

Hi Lady Lyndy, this is such an awe-inspiring blog. Makes me want to finally start a blog of my own.

Great information on Halloween original art vs. reproduction art and copyrights. Your photos are stunning on your entire blog. One of the best blogs I ever seen, very enchanting.

I miss Michael Jackson too, he died to young. He could have created so much more music and more of his famous dance moves and especially his music videos.

RIP - Michael

Ashley
