In the Netherlands, public libraries pay a royalty to the Lending Right Foundation for books that they lend out. Design and Artists Copyright Society (DACS) Dutch sister society Pictoright distributes a share of these royalties to visual artists who are eligible for the scheme.
DACS has received a share of these royalties from Pictoright to distribute to all types of eligible UK visual artists – including fine artists, illustrators and photographers.
To claim your share of the royalties, your work must have been published in a UK book which has been translated into Dutch and published in the Netherlands.
What you can’t claim for:
Books published in the Netherlands only
Books lent through UK public libraries. The UK Public Lending Right scheme is administered separately by PLR UK.
How to apply: Complete the Dutch PLR claim form and return it to DACS with your Payback claim form or no later than TBC. The Payback Terms and Conditions apply.

DACS will be distributing these royalties to eligible applicants in spring 2015, following their Payback royalty distribution at the end of 2014.
