“Copyright is a genuine european achievement and allows the artist who´s good name is an essential part of the transactions to participate in the resales. The risks intrinsic to speculative deals of third parties are equally dangerous for the artists and therefor it is only fair that they receive their share of the increasing value. It is obvious that this is true for artists in all countries.”
