The Resale right
gives authors of works of visual arts and photography an entitlement to Remuneration
in the event of their Work
being sold on. This affects resales in the art trade at auctions, exhibitions, galleries etc. but not through private persons. Swiss Copyright
law does not currently recognise the resale right.
