Universal Declaration of Human Rights article 27 - #udhr27: Everyone has the right to the protection of the moral and material interests resulting from any scientific, literary or artistic production of which he is the author.

In their contribution to realizing these rights for authors (and publishers and rightholders), public libraries often also participate in compensation schemes for authors and publishers.

In the public #2030library which includes access to the internet, there are a number of options for compensating rightholders:

condition of library item compensation by the library
material book the library provides a lending right, proportional with the lending of the work
e-book or e-manifestation the library provides a lending right, proportional with the lending of the work
no compensation needed the library does not need to compensate for lending
