Can you pay the Artist’s Resale Right directly to an artist?
January 31, 2024
Under UK Regulations, you cannot pay the Artist’s Resale Right (ARR) directly to the artist.

ARR can only be collected and distributed by a recognised collecting society such as ACS. 

 

ARR is treated (in the UK) as an inalienable right which means it cannot be waived and royalties are automatically generated upon the completion of an eligible sale.

 

To find out more about who is entitled to the Artist’s Resale Right visit our dedicated Artist’s Resale Right page. You can find the full list of ACS members on the ACS Members page.
