Why do I have to pay reproduction and public communication royalties to ADAGP when I've bought the file of the work from a photographic agency ?

Buying a photographic document on which a copyright protected work is reproduced does not release you from requesting permission from ADAGP to reproduce this work. Your purchase only concerns the photographic rights.

Only ADAGP is authorised to manage the reproduction rights relating to the work when the artist or his/her beneficiaries have entrusted their rights to ADAGP.
