This new and revised third edition takes stock of over 10 years' experience of Artist's Resale Right (ARR), also called droit de suite, in the UK. As well as offering updated guidance it also includes a commentary on recent European and international developments, and the impact of Brexit on ARR in the UK is also considered.

ARR gives artists and their heirs a royalty on re-sales of their art works. This intellectual property right, which forms part of Copyright Law, is originally of French origin and was first introduced into UK law in 2006 to implement the 2001 EU Directive on ARR. ARR remains a right with a strong European focus – it is not currently implemented in a number of significant art markets outside the EU.

Nevertheless the establishment in 2006 of an ARR regime in the UK (the second largest global art market), along with EU harmonisation of the right, have been influential in encouraging states such as the USA, China and Switzerland to consider its adoption.

This book, first published in 2006, continues to be the only UK text dedicated to examining the background to the Directive, UK ARR and its implementation in the UK. The practical guidance offered is essential to all those with an interest in the operation of the right in the UK – artists, collecting societies/CMOs, art dealers, auction houses, art galleries, collectors and their legal advisers. The work includes both a copy of the ARR Directive and the consolidated UK Artist's Resale Right Regulations.
