Artist(s) or the intellectual property right holder(s) have the right to a compensation for reselling their copyrighted material. This fee is usually called a Droit de suite, resale right or a royalty. The royalty is calculated from the sell price excluding VAT. One artwork’s royalty may be a maximum of 12 500 euros. A royalty fee will not be collected on items under the selling price of 255 euros +VAT.

The right to a royalty fee includes artwork that is protected by copyright. In Finland all copyright-eligible works are protected for 70 years after the death of the author / artist. The Ministry of Education and Culture has appointed Kuvasto as the organization for settling the royalty fee. Helander therefore collects payments from buyers in connection with the sale of the work, passes them on to the Catalog, which in turn pays the compensation to the party entitled to the compensation: the visual artist or the right holder.
