The study will examine the different national rules and mechanisms to ensure photographers, illustrators and designers (hereinafter ‘visual artists’) receive remuneration for the exploitation of their works across a selection of Member States.  It will also determine whether, and to what extent, the differences that exist among the Member States affect levels of remuneration.
