The Artists’ Collecting Society (ACS) is the premier collecting society for the collection and distribution of Artist’s Resale Right (ARR) royalties. Find out more by visiting their website: http://artistscollectingsociety.org.uk
How can you help?
As you may know, the UK delayed the inclusion of deceased artists into the Resale Right Directive until 1st January 2012, while in the rest of Europe living artists and those who have been dead for less than seventy years have been eligible to receive ARR since 2006.
Now that secondary sales of all deceased artists who died after 1942 are eligible for ARR in the UK, it is important that any royalties collected are passed to the correct beneficiary. ACS has worked tirelessly to locate and correctly identify the appropriate beneficiaries for a very large number of artists’ estates but there are still a great many whose relatives are, as yet, unknown.
