Visual Arts Copyright Society in Sweden - The purpose of our organisation
BUS operates under the copyright legislation and helps develop these legislations for the benefit of its members. Our objective is to ensure that the creator of an original artwork receives a remuneration when his/her work is used in different media.
But there is much more involved than this. We check to see if our member's work of art has been used in any way, assess if a remuneration is to be paid and if so, what this ought to be. We also collect any due payments and transfer them to the rightful recipient. In addition to this we grant authorization, draw up a contract and make sure that the name of the original artist is mentioned accordingly. We take care of all those important details when your work is submitted in any way for public use.
