In the Netherlands, public libraries pay a royalty to the Lending Right Foundation for books that they lend out. The Dutch collecting 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 illustrators. To be eligible for royalties, artists must have had their work published in a UK book which has been translated into Dutch and published in the Netherlands.
