Following up on an earlier Signal post (Visual Artist’s Resale Right / Droit de Suite in Canada), the 1709 Blog has posted two additional items on the topic which are worth attention:
- Artist’s Royalty Right: not as much impact as was hoped/feared
- Artist Resale Royalty, Harmonisation and a Comment from Down Under
Oddly enough, the discussions in Canada about introducing an artist’s resale right even prompted commentary on the matter from Peter Worthington, writing in the Toronto Sun: This artist doesn’t want ‘greedy’ handout. The Liberal Party of Canada also included the introduction of a resale right as one of their highlighted copyright reform proposals.
