A ONE-STOP-SHOP FOR RIGHTS ON WORKS OF ART
OnLineArt is the interface connecting market demands for easy access to world wide rights and the authors and their estates interests' represented by their visual arts collective management societies. New technologies offer new opportunities for broad dissemination of works to a large interested public.
OnLineArt recognises the strong market demand for easy legal access to content and offers a market solution based on best practise and know-how. At the same time OnLineArt ensures that authors' interests are protected and that they are rewarded when their works are exploited by others.
Thus, users can go ahead with web site projects in legal certainty and artists find themselves in an environment where the value they add to the culture scene and growth of economy is equitably rewarded.
The members of OnLineArt are all not-for-profit organisations; they act for authors as their trustees. Being part of the cultural landscape in the language and culture area they are located, they have long standing contractual contacts with museums, educational institutions, libraries, broadcasters and art publishers. With their services they contribute significantly to the maintenance and further development of Cultural Diversity and the growth of creative industries.
