Section 3 – 2023 Reproduction Royalty Schedule – Commercial and Advertising


B.5.0 • Guiding Principles

This section of the CARFAC-RAAV Minimum Recommended Fee Schedule establishes guidelines for royalties paid to visual and media artists for reproductions made of their artworks for commercial/advertising purposes; that is, when the work is reproduced in conjunction with a product or institution, rather than when the work is reproduced for itself as a work of art. For non-advertising and non-commercial royalties, please see Section 2.

B.5.0.1 What the Royalty covers

A Reproduction Royalty is compensation for the audio-visual, digital, or print reproduction of an artwork. A Reproduction Royalty is compensation for the audio-visual, digital, or print reproduction of an artwork. All royalties listed here are considered minimum recommendations. An artist may request a higher royalty, or they may accept a higher royalty if it is offered. All royalties are payable in Canadian dollars, and they are exclusive of applicable taxes.

Copyright collectives, such as Copyright Visual Arts (CARCC) may request higher royalties for their affiliated artists.

Additional exhibition royalties or professional services fees may apply. For other related royalties and fees payable to visual and media artists, see the relevant category of the Exhibition and Screenings Royalty Schedule, Reproduction Royalty schedule and Artist Professional Service Fees schedule.

Royalties do not include:

  • general equipment (ie: lights, projectors, video, audio, etc) that should be provided by the presenting organization. Special equipment integral to the work is the responsibility of the artist, however if an artist is supplying their own equipment, equipment rental fees should be added. Rental fees for artists’ equipment should match those of the nearest production centre offering similar equipment.
  • publication costs, insurance, shipping, or any other costs associated with the production of an exhibition or other activity.
  • costs related to the production of artwork(s), which should remain negotiable.
  • artists’ travel and accommodation expenses, or per diems payable to the artist so they may attend a site visit, install work, give an artist talk or workshop, attend a reception, etc.
  • presentation, consultation, jury, writing, installation, or preparation fees. Refer to Section 4 Artist Professional Services Fees.

If an artist receives a prestigious award or cash prize, all exhibition and reproduction royalties and professional services fees are to be considered separate from the award amount.

B.5.0.2 What a copyright license covers

A license entitles a user to exhibit or reproduce or use a work in a specified manner. Ownership of a work does not imply a transfer of copyright. Copyright remains the property of the artist unless there is an agreement that states otherwise. We recommend that artists license their rights, rather than assign them.

Moral rights protect a work from associations with unapproved causes or products, and from unapproved alteration or distortion (including overprinting and cropping). They also require that an artist be credited with their creation, unless the artist does not wish to be associated with it.

B.5.0.3 Size of a presenting organization

Unlike rates in the Exhibition and Screening Royalty schedule, we do not currently recommend different rates for Reproduction Royalties according to the host venue’s organizational budget, but some exceptions apply:

*Specific agreements negotiated under the Status of the Artist Act

National Gallery of Canada: Mandatory minimum exhibition and reproduction royalties and professional services fees have been negotiated between CARFAC-RAAV and the NGC since 2015.

Musées nationaux du Québec: Minimum exhibition and reproduction royalties were negotiated between RAAV and the National Museum of Fine Arts of Quebec, the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, the Montreal Museum of Contemporary Art and the Quebec Museum of Civilization in 2016, and it has also been endorsed by CARFAC.

B.6.0 • Exhibitions at Trade Fairs, Salons, and Conventions

This category applies to exhibitions taking place within the framework of a commercial trade fair, salon, or convention not principally dedicated to the sale of the work itself. Rates apply equally to original works of art and to reproductions.

The rate for a full square metre is added for any portion of an additional square metre. Royalties cover exhibition and reproduction rights for one exhibition up to six months in duration.

Original or reproduction up to 1 m sq $600
Per additional square metre $240

See B.5.0.1: What the Royalty covers

For other related royalties and fees payable to visual and media artists, see the relevant category of the Reproduction Royalty schedule, Exhibition and Screenings Royalty schedule and/or Professional Services Fees schedule.
