Resale rights

A reseller of visual artworks is an entrepreneur (or an operator of a consignment store) organizing auctions or whose business is an art gallery, art salon, shop, internet outlet, auction house or similar, offering to purchase an original piece of visual art.


After the first sale of an original visual artwork, the author is entitled to receive royalties from secondary market in the amount stipulated by law, every time the original is sold further in public.

It is the duty of the sellers of visual artworks to submit reports of the sold works to the Agency; AKKA/LAA in turn calculates the royalties and pays them to the authors or their heirs.

The sellers who organize resale of artworks shall sign contracts with AKKA/LAA in agreement of the conditions of report submission and payments.
