Artists Rights Society (ARS) is an organization that represents the intellectual property rights, including the copyrights, of more than 50,000 visual artists worldwide. It has an American repertory, which includes Mark Rothko, Willem de Kooning, Andy Warhol, Georgia O’Keeffe, and Jacob Lawrence, to name some of the prominent members. However, the overwhelming majority of ARS’ members are lesser known artists who have nevertheless devoted their lives to this profession.

This book provides an updated report examining the issues surrounding visual artists and resale royalties in the United States. It is also an adjunct to the Office’s 1992 report, Droit de Suite: The Artist’s Resale Royalty, and takes into account changes in law and practice over the past two decades. The book provides further detail on resale royalties, the Visual Arts and Galleries Association (VAGA), and the Equity for Visual Artists Act of 2011. (Imprint: Nova)
