What can DALRO do for you?
Once a work has been sold, copyright in the artwork remains with you, the creator, (except in the case of commissioned portraits) and you are entitled to a royalty for any use of the image, e.g. using the artwork in books. DALRO will ensure that your work is available for licensing and that you receive all the royalties as your work is licenced.
You as the artist also retains control over how the work may be used.
Please note: We don't fulfil the role of a gallery - we only manage the administration of the copyright to anyone who wishes to reproduce the work and the collection and payment of royalties.
