In the age of digital publishing when all backlist is frontlist, there are new opportunities and pitfalls that publishers must be aware of in order to better manage their content, reach their readers, and maximize revenue for themselves and their writers.
On June 13, Publishing Perspectives and Ingenta will host a half-day conference in New York City titled Rights and Content in the Digital Age, to address these issues. Leading experts in the book industry and other media will highlight the proliferation of rights opportunities—types, channels, translation, format, fragmentation—available to publishers and authors, highlight ways to manage their current and future rights and licenses, provide case studies, and share situations where publishers unwittingly left themselves open to legal ramifications.
Featuring Ingenta’s Chief Revenue Officer, Randy Petway as one of the guest speaker, Rights and Content in the Digital Age will provide prescriptive advice, share helpful experiences, and identify creative new opportunities.
