Artists are to get paid when their work is resold in a shakeup of copyright laws that would give them a slice of collectors' profits.

Painters, sculptors and other visual artists stand to get a payout when their work is resold at auction and by galleries, in a government move designed to help sustain thousands of artists currently working below the poverty line.
