This Artnet article is essentially an advertisement for the company and as such is of little significance or importance. SkinnyTOD (talk) 02:33, 2 August 2010 (UTC)

Though I agree it is a commercial enterprise, the fact remains that their database is a free online resource for art auctioned worldwide. Even though you have to pay to access complete records, the last three auctioned items are available as thumbnails or larger pictures with the basic information from the auction house, and this is of enormous value for getting an impression of an artist's work. I have used them time and again for quick information on lesser known 17th century artists, and then I have managed to get even more information from the auction houses referenced.

Doesn't look like a glaring advert either now, or back in 2010. -- Trevj (talk) 09:44, 20 June 2012 (UTC)
Perhaps the article was transformed since June 2012, but it's become partly a press release, and partly copied from the subject's website. NPOV is an issue. 99.136.254.88 (talk) 19:10, 10 February 2013 (UTC)

The company "promotes accessibility" according to this article. This is joke, right? This is a company that promotes their database, which is the simplest product imagineable, at outrageous costs with a very limited number of allowed searches even in the most expensive price ranges. Nothing that Artnet does is "accessible" to the general public by any means. This article is an advertisement, and a bad one. --Anvilaquarius (talk) 08:02, 10 March 2021 (UTC)

MergerEdit

It has been suggested that Artnet News be moved here. The Artnet News article is rather short, and could probably be easily included as a section here. I think the merger is probably a good idea, with a redirect to here put in place at Artnet News. XeroxKleenex (talk) 04:22, 16 August 2014 (UTC)

I've done that, XeroxKleenex. There wasn't any useful referenced content there, but I added the references to this page. They make quite amusing reading. Justlettersandnumbers (talk) 13:53, 6 September 2015 (UTC)

Conflict of interestEdit

A major contributor to this article (who has edited under more than one account name) appears to have a very clear conflict of interest here. Conflict-of-interest editors are strongly discouraged from editing the article directly, but are always welcome to propose changes on the talk page (i.e., here). You can attract the attention of other editors by putting {{request edit}} (exactly so, with the curly parentheses) at the beginning of your request, or by clicking the link on the lowest yellow notice above. Requests that are not supported by independent reliable sources are unlikely to be accepted.

Please also note that our Terms of Use state that "you must disclose your employer, client, and affiliation with respect to any contribution for which you receive, or expect to receive, compensation." An editor who contributes as part of his or her paid employment is required to disclose that fact. Justlettersandnumbers (talk) 13:25, 7 September 2015 (UTC)
