2006 New York Code - Information Required.


 
    § 15.03. Information  required.  The  following  information  shall be
  supplied, as indicated, as to each multiple produced on or after January
  first, nineteen hundred eighty-two:
    1. Artist. State the name of the artist.
    2. Signature. If the artist's name  appears  on  the  multiple,  state
  whether  the  multiple  was  signed  by the artist. If not signed by the
  artist then state the source of the artist's name on the multiple,  such
  as  whether  the  artist placed his signature on the master, whether his
  name was stamped or estate stamped on the multiple,  or  was  from  some
  other source or in some other manner placed on the multiple.
    3.  Medium  or  process. (a) Describe the medium or process, and where
  pertinent to photographic processes the material, used in producing  the
  multiple,  such  as  whether  the multiple was produced through etching,
  engraving, lithographic,  serigraphic  or  a  particular  method  and/or
  material   used   in   the  photographic  developing  processes.  If  an
  established term, in accordance with the usage of the trade,  cannot  be
  employed  accurately  to  describe the medium or process, a brief, clear
  description shall be made.
    (b) If the purported artist was deceased at the time  the  master  was
  made which produced the multiple, this shall be stated.
    (c)  If  the  multiple  or the image on or in the master constitutes a
  mechanical,  photomechanical,  hand-made   or   photographic   type   of
  reproduction,  or is a reproduction, of an image produced in a different
  medium, for a purpose other than the  creation  of  the  multiple  being
  described, this information and the respective mediums shall be stated.
    (d)  If  paragraph  (c)  of  this  subdivision  is applicable, and the
  multiple is not signed, state whether the artist authorized or  approved
  in  writing  the  multiple  or  the  edition of which the multiple being
  described is one.
    4. Use of master. (a) If the multiple is a "posthumous" multiple, that
  is, if the master was created during the life  of  the  artist  but  the
  multiple was produced after the artist's death, this shall be stated.
    (b)  If  the  multiple  was  made from a master which produced a prior
  limited edition, or from a master which constitutes or was made  from  a
  reproduction  of  a  prior  multiple or of a master which produced prior
  multiples, this shall be stated.
    5. Time produced. As to  multiples  produced  after  nineteen  hundred
  forty-nine,  state  the  year  or  approximate  year  the  multiple  was
  produced. As to multiples produced  prior  to  nineteen  hundred  fifty,
  state  the  year,  approximate  year  or period when the master was made
  which produced the multiple and/or when the  particular  multiple  being
  described  was  produced.  The requirements of this subdivision shall be
  satisfied when the year stated is approximately accurate.
    6. Size of the edition. (a) If the multiple being described is offered
  as one of a limited edition, this shall be so stated,  as  well  as  the
  number  of multiples in the edition, and whether and how the multiple is
  numbered.
    (b)  Unless  otherwise  disclosed,  the  number  of  multiples  stated
  pursuant  to  paragraph  (a)  of  this  subdivision  shall constitute an
  express warranty, as defined in section 13.01 of  this  title,  that  no
  additional  numbered  multiples  of the same image, exclusive of proofs,
  have been produced.
    (c) The number of multiples stated pursuant to paragraph (a)  of  this
  subdivision  shall  also  constitute  an express warranty, as defined in
  section 13.01 of this title, that no additional multiples  of  the  same
  image,  whether designated "proofs" other than trial proofs, numbered or
  otherwise, have been produced in an amount which exceeds the  number  in
  the limited edition by twenty or twenty percent, whichever is greater.
    (d)  If  the  number  of  multiples  exceeds  the number in the stated
  limited edition as provided in paragraph (c) of this  subdivision,  then
  state the number of proofs other than trial proofs, or other numbered or
  unnumbered multiples, in the same or other prior editions, produced from
  the  same  master  as  described in paragraph (b) of subdivision four of
  this section, and whether and how they are signed and numbered.
