Artists Resale Royalty Bill Dead In the Water…Again

Nicholas O’Donnell updates us on the status of the (previously) pending resale royalty bill,

Nadler introduced a resale royalty bill in 2011, but it failed to become law.  Last year, on the heels of a Copyright Office recommendation to enact resale royalty legislation, Nadler introduced the Resale Royalties Too Act of 2014.  He gave an impassioned defense of the idea at the Appraisers Association of America’s Art Law Day at NYU in November, and it briefly appeared headed for a vote, but with the turn of the calendar page this version too is now void.  Will he, or others, try again?
