Artists' Rights

The Artist's Resale Right will be fully established on 1 January 2012, aligning it with all other EU member states. At present, the Right allows visual artists a modest royalty when their works are resold through auction houses, galleries and art dealers. The final implementation of the Right will extend royalties to deceased artists' families and beneficiaries. To learn more, click the title link for the website of the Design and Artists Copyright Society (DACS). There is a petition to sign as well.
