The Scheme was established for visual artists to receive five per cent of the sale price when works are resold through the art market for $1000 or more. The right applies to living artists and for a period of 70 years after an artists death. The scheme is prospective, applying only to resales of original works acquired after the 9 June, meaning that the resale royalty will be payable on the second transfer of ownership. The Copyright Agency Limited (CAL) appointed by the Government to collect resale royalties for the coming five years, brings two decades of experience in copyright management to setting up the resale royalty scheme. The Resale Royalty Act requires art market professionals to report to CAL on art sales, so that CAL can determine when a resale is payable. For more information on the Resale Royalty Scheme visit www.copyright.com.au. In Darwin CAL will hold two free seminars on 12 August from 3:00pm to 4:30pm for art dealers, galleries, auction houses and Indigenous Art Centres and from 5:30pm to 7:00pm for artists at the Medina Vibe Hotel, 7 Kitchener Drive at the Darwin City Waterfront, and will be available to answer questions during the Darwin Aboriginal Art Fair from 12-14 August.
