Royalty scheme locked in to recognise visual artists,
24 August 2023, New Zealand

The Resale Right for Visual Artists Bill has passed its third reading unanimously today, guaranteeing that visual artists reap the rewards when their work is sold on the secondary art market.

The regulations to support this new legislation have now also been confirmed, giving clarity to artists on how this scheme will operate.
“We are building a scheme fit for Aotearoa New Zealand, one that values the important contributions our visual artists make to our country,” Minister for Arts, Culture and Heritage Carmel Sepuloni said.
