12% up on last years max claim for a max claim on both books and mags . No TV sales but ISBN/ISSN recorded well in excess of current 501/1301 max. Estimate that the "10% pot" accounted for about 40% of my claim. Now await claims made on my behalf by other agencies.

 

Regen

 

The 10% pot accounted for 41.3% of my claim so either there were not many successful claiments or it will become a very significant part of future claims!

Regen

The 10% pot only accounted for 6% of my payback and that was mostly magazines.  I had nearly four A4 pages of ISBN/ISSN numbers.  I don't know what that means for the future but I'm guessing it's not good.  My payback was £200 down on last year even though I am maxed out for mags and books.

Let's face it, we've been diddled, not by DACS, of course, but DACS' attempt to present a swindle as an opportunity has fallen a bit flat IMO.

IMO, all non-UKers

(pronounced YOOK-ers)

should have their paybacks

decreased by at least 1/3rd.

Am saying that as a non-UKer...

If US had DACS equivalent, I would

resent non-USers getting same as me...

(pronounced USS-ers)

I'm a non-YOOKer and mine was reduced by 1/3 this year.

It seems to have already happened.

DACS tariff:

for that which Yookers get a quid,

non-Yookers get 0.66 quid...

Bloody time to stop DACSit.

Stop sucking the quid out of Yookdom!!!

The last thing I want is more nationalism.

 

DACS gives Payback for UK sales and is open to all who sell in UK.

 

Yes, other countries should offer the same - or at least that would be nice.

Canada offers something similar (can't remember the name), but last I checked the process for submitting claims was draconian -- you actually had to supply photocopies of published images (a bit ironic) and copyright certificates of some kind, I believe. DACS is a dream in comparison.

 

Both my parents were British. I was born in what was then the British West Indies.  I lived in Britain for awhile when I was a kid, and I now hang my hat in British Columbia. So perhaps I qualify as an honorary UKer even though I find all forms of nationalism totally scary. I don't even know all the words to O Canada or God Save the Queen. I can hum them both, though. B)

This is the Canadian version. I attempted to apply a couple of years ago and gave up.

I gave up too.  Every time I checked that website I got a message as shown below.  Not sure when the actual period for applications is, but I've never seen it open.

 

 

Payback for Writers and Payback for Visual Artists

The 2017 Payback claim period is now closed.

The deadline used to be around September, but now it's been brought forward. 

They sent an email to previous applicants and most got in their claims early.

Not unless you happen to have dual (American/Canadian) citizenship -- i.e. open to Canadian citizens only.

If Alamy could find a way to negotiate with all these DACS equivalents overseas then it certainly would be worth handing over the 50% split.

I strongly suspect you're over 35 and having one British-born parent was enough to make you British until 1981. So you are, and unlike those chaps who live to the south of you we recognise dual nationality. Welcome home.

Definitely over 35. In fact, the Caribbean island on which I was born was still a Crown colony when I showed up, which I guess makes me a British subject by birth. I never quite figured that one out.

 

Thanks very much for the kind welcome. However, for the time being, I'm calling planet Earth home (FBFW). B)

You can be a US citizen so long as you have a Canadian passport.

That's not my experience John.  I find Access Copyright about the same difficulty level as DACS.

BTW, I haven't got any money yet from DACS - should I be worried enough to e-mail them?

Do you supply photocopies to AC?

 

I would definitely e-mail DACS at this point. My payment came through at least a week ago. Good luck.

No John.  I don't remember details, but it's not that hard.

 

Oops, I was looking in PayPal.  It went right into my bank by wire on Oct 3.  Down to 80% of last year.  But hey - I got a big $2.24 from alamy for TV.
