But the models vary. In Denmark the creators of works (authors, translators, photographers, artists, composers) don't get paid based on number of loans, but number of works(*), and the payment is a kind of government grant or support. It's not a reimbursement for possibly lost sales.

(*) Mostly, but also other things.
