losdemas Posted May 3, 2019 Share Posted May 3, 2019 I know that many of you will have received an email from DACS regarding claims in Germany ("Had visual works published in Germany? Apply for royalties now.") The limitations on the information that we are able to garner from (specifically) Alamy make this difficult, but far from impossible. A useful way of adding more beans to the pot... Anyhow, the main point of this post is that I just received an email from DACS ("Great News! We have royalties for you"). Initially, I thought that this must be just an advanced missive confirming that my regular claim had been successfully processed, but no! It is to advise me that "DACS has received a back payment via the German society VG BildKunst for private copy in Germany. This is due to a recent change in German law, resulting from a court ruling." and thus "we have retrospective royalties to pay you" This, they say, relates to Payback in 2016! I'm going to email them to garner more info, as I don't know how they have ascertained that I have specific German licenses, as my Payback claims have (naturally) related to UK licenses. Has anyone else received similar emails? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
