PICSEL is a not-for-profit, visual arts collecting society (CMO) created and run by visual artists and their representatives. Membership is open to all rightsholders, and entities representing rightsholders.

We were formed in 2016 under the terms of the CRM Directive which was adopted into UK Law in April 2016. For the first time rightsholders were given the choice over which CMO they wanted to manage their rights in collective licensing agreements.

There are no levies in the UK, and all licenses are voluntary, but there is still over £6m available to visual artists and their representatives annually.

PICSEL has embraced the data driven model implemented by the UK licensing body, the Copyright Licensing Agency (CLA). This successful working model is the basis of PICSEL’s proposal for implementation of Article 17 of the Copyright Directive.

The data model has seen record levels of remuneration to visual artists in the UK, where revenue follows rights by matching rightsholders licensed repertoire to incidents of copying by licensees.

This model is an evolving one, as technology makes matching easier, and rightsholders data becomes more accurate. We also see licensing of platforms as a process of evolution with technology, platforms and rightsholders coming together to create a workable solution.

We believe the technology and data is readily available, and the model is already working in the UK for publications. All that remains is a cost effective, and non-punitive, implementation which we have proposed.
