ADAGP is the French collective administration organization for the rights of authors in the visual arts (painting, sculpture, photography, multimedia, etc.).
ADAGP members benefit from better control over the uses of their works and better collection of their royalties.
Main missions of ADAGP :
- Collecting and distributing economic rights to its members
for the use of their works.
- Defending all its members' rights against any third party,
including through legal proceedings.
- Defending Authors' Rights (Intellectual Property Law).
Rights administered : ADAGP collects and distributes rights for artists in the following areas :
- Reproduction rights (books, posters, press, merchandising...),
- Representation rights (audiovisual productions, computer displays...),
- Droit de suite (resale rights),
- Private copy,
ADAGP's scope of activity covers not only France but the whole world, through its network of foreign sister societies which oversee members' rights on their territories. Reciprocally, ADAGP manages foreign societies' repertoires in France. Users of works can thus clear all rights with only one organization. ADAGP is represented in a wide number of foreign countries thanks to representation agreements signed with its sister societies.
Moral rights, which are inalienable, indefeasible and non transferable, remain the prerogative of the authors or their rights-holders and cannot therefore be protected by ADAGP.
