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 Works originally made on film remain classified as works on film even if the image has been transferred to videotape or digital support.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.2.1.1 • Reproduction of a Fixed Image in a Cinematographic Work

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

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

For special projects where a number of works by the same artist are used, a nominal royalty of $300 may be offered. For non-profit cultural or educational projects, the royalty is reduced by 50%, or the conditions negotiated. Royalties do not cover the use of work for promotion of the project.  For such uses, commercial reproduction schedules apply.

A.3.0  Promotion of an exhibition or an event dedicated to the presentation of a work of visual art


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 $26. 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

These museums are: Musée national des beaux-arts du Québec, Musée des beaux-arts de Montréal, Musée d’art contemporain de Montréal and Musée de la civilisation du Québec. Providing the four museums pay the current year’s CARFAC/RAAV minimum 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.

      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.

      A.3.1.2 Fixed Images on the Internet

      These rates are for non-commercial, non-advertising uses by non-profit organizations with a cultural mandate.  All others should use the rates listed in Section 3, B.3.1.2.

      The royalty for use for exhibition promotion is $25 per image per support with every third use free for the duration of the exhibition where CARFAC/RAAV-level exhibition royalties have been paid.

      ‘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 royalties.

      For a network intranet, or an Internet site with limited access (i.e. password subscription), the applicable rate is reduced by 50%.

      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.

      A license for more than one year may be issued if all royalties are paid up front, or an annual payment schedule is negotiated.

      For the security of images on the internet, images should be used at a resolution of 72 dpi, that watermarks be placed on images if possible, and that a copyright notice be placed in proximity to the image.

      For on-line exhibitions of still-image works, illustration of non-advertising texts, or other projects which offer interpretation of the work, the following rates apply.

      A.4 Print Reproduction

      The royalties are for non-advertising uses.  Please see Section B.4 for advertising and commercial uses.  Non-advertising use includes items bearing reproductions promoting the work itself, the artist, or an exhibition including the work – other promotional items (such as brochures promoting museum) must use applicable advertising schedules. 

      For invitation cards (or e-invitations) promoting an exhibition for which CARFAC/RAAV-level exhibition royalties have been paid the royalty is $25 per support with every third use free, regardless of print run or size.

      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.

      Taxes are not included in the amounts shown.

      A.4.1 Books and Catalogues

      Royalties listed allow use within Canada.  For world-wide rights, the royalty is doubled.  For North American rights, add 50%.

      For a single reproduction on a page without text (excluding credit line), the full page rate applies regardless of image size.

      For a second use in the same publication of an image used for a cover or inside illustration, the rate is 50% of the applicable royalty; for subsequent uses the rate is 33% of the applicable royalty.

      For a work appearing in the background of an image, the rate is 60% of the applicable royalty.  The artist must approve this use.

      If a book intended for sale is a monograph (relates to only one artist), the following formula is used for the calculation of royalties: 10% of estimated retail price multiplied by the exact print run, payable in advance.  Each additional print run must be re-licensed.  Royalties may also be paid by advance payment plus a percentage of the proceeds of sale. 

      If more than one image appears on a cover, use the full-page rate for each image. 

      Taxes are not included in the amounts shown.
