Resale right

Resale right means the right granted the author of an original work of art or original manuscript to receive a percentage of the sales price obtained from any resale of the work subsequent to the first transfer by the author.

Subsequent sale means any sale effected by vendors, purchaser or intermediaries acting as professional sellers in works of art, such as auction houses, art galleries and, in general, any dealer in works of art (art. 144 of author’s right legislation).
