History of the organisation
VEGAP, created in 1990 by Spanish artists, is a non-profit organization that collectively manages the copyright of visual artists in accordance with Intellectual Property Law. It represents more than one hundred and twenty thousand authors from all over the world, in Spain.
VEGAP manages the rights of reproduction, distribution, public communication and transformation, rights of remuneration, resale right and remuneration for private copying. In addition, authors have moral rights, such as the right of recognition for the author’s status or the right of protection for the author’s integrity. These rights are not the object of management, but of defense, and VEGAP helps authors to defend them.
The organization manages these rights in favor of the authors it represents and adapts to the management needs of each of its members. There is a way of managing rights for every need. Models of contracts, licenses, tariffs...
In order to guarantee respect for the copyright of visual artists throughout Spain and abroad, VEGAP has signed hundreds of agreements with Public and Private Institutions and User Associations as well as reciprocal representation contracts with forty-one author’s rights societies from other countries.
