The Impact of Artistic Ownership on Aesthetic Judgment and Preference

Artistic ownership is the extent to which artists both conceive of and execute their own work (e.g. songs by singer-songwriters, films written by directors). Using real-world data and experiments, we show artistic ownership plays a role in aesthetic judgment (critical acclaim) but not aesthetic preference (consumer liking or marketplace success).
