Comic book writers, mangakas, youth author-illustrators, press or agency photographers, press cartoonists ... Have your images been published or broadcast? Don't forget to declare your publications before February 28!



Authors for whom ADAGP only manages collective rights must send us the declaration of the exploitation of their works, with a view to calculating the share of collective rights due to them (photocopying rights, audiovisual private copying,. ..)

This information is necessary for the repayment of your rights.

In order for the uses of the works to be taken into account, it is imperative that the declarations reach us before February 28, 2021.


Which declarations to fill?

Each declaration corresponds to a type of operation:

The [Book Declaration] allows you to declare the uses of your works in books, including those published abroad, in 2020.

This information is used for the distribution of "book" reprography rights (photocopying) and the library lending right.

The [Press declaration] allows you to declare the uses of your works in the press, including the foreign press, in 2020.

This information is used for the distribution of reprography (photocopying) and private digital “press” copying rights.

The [Television declaration] allows you to declare the broadcasts of your works in television programs (WebTVs are not taken into account).
