    Special Terms/Conditions for the Grant of Rights for Books & Brochures

    I. Reprints

    1.The licence from VG Bild-Kunst extends only to the publication stipulated by the publishing house and the print run stipulated. For every non-authorized print run VG Bild-Kunst charges a 100% surcharge for media monitoring in addition to the royalties according to the basic tariff without any discount.

    2.If after the reproduction licence has been granted for a particular print run additional copies are reprinted or printed off unchanged within 24 months of publication of the work, this shall be deemed to have been authorized if VG Bild-Kunst was notified of the increase in advance and the differential amount within the print run bracket has been paid.

    3.Cooperation transactions with particular forms of distribution require an individual contract.

    4.If the print run is published by the same publishing house in foreign languages within 5 years following publication in the Federal Republic of Germany the individual print runs may be charged as an overall print run together with the German print run. 

    II. Surcharges / Discounts 

    Only one of the discounts within categories 2-5 may be claimed.

    1.Cover Pictures or Dust Covers

    a) The use of an illustration for the front cover or back cover gives rise to a surcharge of 200% of the price for use on the inside, however the fee shall be a minimum of EUR 250 plus value added tax (Mehrwertsteuer) for printed products, respectively EUR 150 plus value added tax (Mehrwertsteuer) for E-books.

    b) The use of an illustration for the front cover or back cover of an illustrated printed work containing at least 10 payable illustrations of authors, whose rights are administered by VG Bild-Kunst gives rise to a surcharge of 100% of the price for use on the inside, however the fee shall be a minimum of EUR 250 plus value added tax (Mehrwertsteuer) for printed products, respectively EUR 150 plus value added tax (Mehrwertsteuer) for E-books. 

    2.Re-Use on the Inside

    When a cover page illustration is reused unchanged on the inside a discount of 50% is granted on said use.

    3.Brochures, which are not merchandise and do not bear an ISBN (e.g. the brochures of publishing houses), can be consolidated if the printed and digital versions are published at the same time. The print runs are added together and a surcharge of 10% is charged on top of the tariff for the total print run.

    4.School Books

    A discount of 25% is granted on all school books. If a school book is offered on electronic storage media (CD/DVD/USB/Blu-ray etc.) or on the Internet for downloading (subject to a charge) in a version which is unchanged compared to the printed book (unchanged page layout, PDF or similar format, image files not individually integrated), said electronic derivatives may be consolidated into a single print run together with the printed edition. A download is thereby counted as a copy of the printed edition. A prerequisite is that the precise split of the print run into the individual media is designated when the enquiry is made. A surcharge of 30% is charged on top of the tariff for the total print run.

    5.Paperbacks and Small-Format Books

    A discount of 25% of the tariff applicable to books is granted in the case of illustrations in paperback books, which have a width of no more than 17 cm and a height of no more than 24 cm, and in the case of small-format books (up to 12 x 17 cm). This discount is increased to 35% if the book contains more than 20 images by authors, whose rights are administered by VG Bild-Kunst. If the format is negligibly exceeded (up to 10% of the above-mentioned dimensions) the discount is 15% irrespective of the number of images.

    III. Special Provisions

    1.Monographs

    In the case of books, which are predominantly illustrated by a single author, it is possible to pay a percentage of the fee claims based on the retail price instead of the above tariffs. A special agreement is required for this.

    2.Exhibition Catalogues

    a) For the exhibiting institution the reproduction of works of art in catalogues is free of charge and does not require a licence. It is a prerequisite that the catalogue is sold solely in connection with the exhibition and that the works of art pictured in the catalogue are on public display (available to the public). 

    b) The prior written consent of VG Bild-Kunst is required if catalogues are to be sold by the exhibiting institution after the exhibition or presentation of the collection has ended or are to be sold on the market during and after the exhibition. 

    c) If museums have concluded the standard museum agreement with VG Bild-Kunst, the terms and conditions thereof shall take precedence over the terms and conditions under paragraphs a) to b).

    d) In the case of print runs of exhibition catalogues for the book trade a special discount can be granted if the total charge for fees charged by VG Bild-Kunst exceeds 15% of the net retail price. 

    3.Printed works of an advertising nature

    Image brochures, business reports, commemorative volumes for or by companies and similar publications as well as books and brochures, which do not serve to advertise the publishing house itself and which contain a high proportion of advertising, are charged according to the tariff for advertising brochures.

    4.Audio Books

    Cover designs and images in the booklet are charged according to the book tariff. If the same image is used more than once a discount can be agreed. 

    5.E-Books

    If the publishing house promotes an E-Book by the cover of the print version, whereas the E-Book itself does not contain this image, a sum of EUR 1501 plus value added tax (Mehrwertsteuer) is charged.

    General Terms and Conditions of Business of VG Bild-Kunst
    (online reproduction rights)


    Preliminary note - General
    VG Bild-Kunst is the German collecting society for the administration of copyrights of visual artists, photographers and other creators of visual art.
    It operates within the scope of the provisions of the German Law on the Administration of Copyright and Neighbouring Rights dated 9 September 1965 (FLG I p. 1294 "UrhWahrnG" as last amended, which can be viewed online at www.gesetze-im-internet.de - UrhWahrnG).

    Besides authors from the Federal Republic of Germany, VG Bild-Kunst also represents international authors through reciprocal agreements with collecting societies in other countries. The names of authors represented can be found by using our online search facility (see www.bildkunst.de - Artist search - Online rights).

    Further information about membership can be obtained from the Bonn office:

    VG Bild-Kunst, Weberstrasse 61, 53113 Bonn,
    Tel. 0228 / 91534-0, Fax 0228 / 91534-59, email: info@bildkunst.de

    Any and all use of works of visual art and of photography whose authors are represented by VG Bild-Kunst is subject to the prior consent of VG Bild-Kunst. Such consent is granted, and invoices are issued, by the Bonn office.

    The tariffs are only binding for the granting of rights by VG Bild-Kunst with respect to rights of reproduction and rights of distribution that have been granted to it by the authors. They are in principle not binding for agreements entered into by authors and/or other rightholders with the users directly.

    The granting of exploitation rights by VG Bild-Kunst does not include any agency-type services such as, for example, confirming location or providing master copies.

    If VG Bild-Kunst grants the user any exploitation rights, such rights are always only non-exclusive licences. The user is not entitled to re-assign the exploitation rights or to grant further exploitation rights in the same.

    This replaces previous tariff schedules.
