A.2 - A.4  Reproduction Copyright Royalties
Non-commercial, Non-advertising

The royalties listed in this section apply generally to reproductions made for non-commercial, non-advertising purposes; that is, when the work is reproduced for itself as a work of art, and not presented in conjunction with a product or institution.  For advertising and commercial royalties, please see Section 3.

A license entitles a user to reproduce or use a work in a specified manner.  Ownership of a work does not imply a transfer of copyright.  Copyright remains the property of the artist unless there is an agreement that states otherwise.

Moral rights protect a work from associations with unapproved causes or products, from unapproved alteration or distortion (including overprinting and cropping), and require that an artist be credited with his or her creation.

Royalties listed below are for use of copyright only and do not include the cost of reproduction, rental royalties, shipping or insurance costs, etc.

Taxes are not included in the amounts shown.  


• A.2 • Audio-Visual Reproduction

• A.2.1 • Reproduction Within A Cinematographic Work

A cinematographic work may be a work of fiction, a documentary, or a work of art, on film, videotape, or digital support. Works originally made on film remain classified as works on film even if the image has been transferred to videotape or digital support. This category includes all productions intended for broadcast.

• A.2.1 • Reproduction Within A Cinematographic Work

The licenses permit public viewing in local or regional broadcasts.  For national or international broadcasts, the fees are doubled.  The licenses include all languages, and all types of distribution (screening, broadcast, video sales, etc.).  For major productions, the fee may be tripled.

The fees are calculated for a 5-year license.  For a 10-year use, the basic fee is multiplied by 1.5; for a 25-year use, the basic fee is multiplied by 2.5.

For works used in a documentary profile of an artist, the following rates apply, but the length of the license is increased to in perpetuity.

‘Number of works’ generally refers to the number of images included in a license.  In the case of a license including works by several artists, ‘number of works’ would refer to the number of images contributed by each artist, for the purposes of calculating the fees.

For special projects where a number of works by the same artist are used, a nominal fee of $300 may be offered.

For non-profit cultural or educational projects, the fee is reduced by 50%, or the conditions negotiated.

Fees do not cover the use of work for promotion of the project.  For such uses, commercial reproduction schedules apply.

A.3 Digital or Electronic Reproductions


For exhibitions where CARFAC/RAAV-level exhibition copyright royalties have been paid to the artist, a general special rate is allowed for reproductions directly promoting the exhibition. 

Provided the CARFAC/RAAV-level exhibition copyright royalties have been paid to the artist, specific rates and conditions have been negotiated by CARFAC and RAAV for the National Gallery of Canada (NGC) and for Quebec’s four national museums : the Quebec National Museum of Fine Arts, the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, the Museum of Contemporary Arts (Montreal) and the Museum of Civilization (Quebec City).

Copyright Visual Arts (CARCC) may request more than the minimums established by these agreements for artists who are affiliated with it.

General Special Rate:

The royalty of $25 per work per support regardless of print run and size is suggested for the following:  invitation, internet site, e-invitations, not-for-sale catalogues, brochures or folders, social media postings, publicity in journals or periodicals

When three promotional items are produced bearing reproductions of one artist’s work for the same exhibition, the third use may be granted free of charge.

The exceptions here is use in catalogues that are offered for sale or outdoor advertising, such as banners; in these instances, reproductions royalties should be charged as listed in the CARFAC-RAAV Schedules.

Specific Rates and Conditions:

a- National Gallery of Canada (NGC)

The royalty to be paid is $25 per usage. The duration of the license for the web use will be for the duration of the exhibition including two months prior and one month after the exhibition.

b- Quebec’s four National Museums

Providing the four museums pay the current year’s CARFAC/RAAV-level exhibition copyright royalties, they can benefit from four different packages of usages they can choose from. These usages are any regular or digital types of reproduction related to the promotion of an exhibition, except in a catalogue.

Conditions attached to packages:

The rates given are per work.  ‘Number of works’ generally refers to the number of images included in a license.

A.3.1 Internet

These royalties apply to the presentation of a digital reproduction of a work on the Internet, considered to be an electronic publication.  For exhibitions of works of art conceived for the Internet, please use the Exhibition Royalty schedules. 

Internet use is necessarily worldwide, so licenses are issued for world-wide use.

Licenses specify parameters of digitization and electronic publication (i.e. maximum dpi, protections against unauthorized downloading).  Removal of the image from the data base is required once the license is expired.

These are non-commercial, non-advertising rates.  They apply where the user organization has a mandate to promote work or artists (collectives, museums, artist-run centres and so on), and is exercising its cultural or educational mandate.  For all other types of use, please refer to the commercial rates in Section B.3.1.

 

A.3.1.1 Moving Images on the Internet

This category includes video or film works, interactive works, and sound works. If an extract is used on a banner page, the applicable royalty is doubled. Licenses are issued for up to one year.  Longer licenses may be negotiated. If the work is to be included in an on-line exhibition, exhibition royalties are due.  See Exhibition Royalties, Section 1.

For the inclusion of non-interactive video, film or sound works in archives or long-term projects, the royalty is $250 per work, for a license of five years duration. For the inclusion of interactive works in archives or long-term projects the royalty is $250 per work, per year.

For works included in a catalogue of a collection, an on-line archive, or database where little interpretation beyond simple identification of the work is offered, or in a pdf-style publication, the duration of the license is extended to five years and the royalty is equivalent to that for a one-year license given in A.3.1.2 below.

If a work is used in more than one location on a site, 20% is added for each additional use.

For works appearing on a home page, the royalty is doubled.

For licenses extended beyond the one-year limit, the royalties may be prorated on a monthly or annual basis.
