Hi Britt,
Thank you for your reply and sorry for my slow response, it seems difficult to get details of the Aust print run and seems like it must be a sensitive area .....

I have found out that the publisher I produced art work for has rights only for Australia and NZ (not USA and CAN)
It has been suggested that the UK publishers print run is much smaller than Aust publishers.
It has also been explained that the treatment of rights for this title is a little different to the average arrangement and so my Aust publishers are hard pressed to advise me regarding my expanded use fee.

Might you be suggesting that if the print run was say, 50% of the Aust print run, that my expanded use fee may also be 50% of original fee ??
Would this type of calculation be fair and reasonable ?

It was suggested I contact the Australian Society of Authors fee schedule.

thank you very much for all your help and advice
best regards,

> If you don't have a copy of the Graphic Artist's Guild's Handbook on Pricing and Ethical Guidelines, you might want to get one. It is an invaluable overview of the art market. If you did the cover art as well, that might bump up the amount a bit extra. It is a bit late for judging the appropriateness of how much you charged for the original art, but if you windily under bid, you might be able to make up a little of this in the reuse rights. Were these in Color or B&W. and haow much art is there?
> According to the Eleventh Edition (a bit long in the tooth now) foreign reuse rights sell for 50%-250% of the original fee. I would be curious to know if there was a limit on the distribution quantity of Print+Ebook for your original sale for the USA/Canada/Aust Market. If so, that is a number you should compare to the quantity they are asking for now.
> This is definitely a case where you should expect a payment for expanded use. And it is a bit flexible depending on the situation.
