S.I.A.E., Società Italiana Autori ed Editori, oversees and defends:
- the rights of reproduction related to the original works produced by Mimmo Rotella within books, catalogues, magazines, posters, postcards, objects and various materials realized for merchandising purposes, multimedia support such as VHS and CD-ROM;
- the rights of diffusion, that is broadcasting the works in video, television, whether satellite or cable, and through the Internet;
- the rights of distribution (retailing), namely the right to place on the market, or available to the public, the reproduction of the works or copies thereof.
All these rights allow the heirs of the author to authorize or not the use of the images of his work.
For the reproduction of images of the artist's creations is therefore mandatory to send a request for authorization to S.I.A.E., O.L.A.F. (Literary Works and Visual Arts) Section. The S.I.A.E. then will forward the practice to the assignee.
In the absence of authorization, the publication of the images is not permitted and is a punishable offense with fine, whatever is the medium.
