BIC Brunch, June 2022
Rights - A Key Part of the Publishing Value Chain
Thursday 30th June 2022, 2.00pm (BST) - register here. Online/webina #bicbrunch

Event kindly sponsored by FADEL

It might be argued that everything the book industry does ultimately stems from rights, or the permission to sell or license. This BIC Brunch, kindly sponsored by FADEL, will focus on the basics and definitions of rights management. What do we means by rights? What different types of rights exist in the book/content eco-system? What impact do they have on the supply chain, and on maximising sales and new streams of revenue? And how do organisations, or individuals even know the right permissions are in place?

In this session we'll cover a variety of topics as follows:

  • What are rights?
  • Common terminology
  • How authors' deals/contracts are key to creating a rights inventory for optimal business operation
  • The importance of ensuring all right for different (i.e., from different sources/authors/creators) content in your products align.
  • How well understood and managed rights are a valuable asset to a publishing organisation.
  • How rights impact the publishing ecosystem - we'll look at the different types of rights transactions.
  • How book industry standards can help.

The Host:

Karina Urquhart, Executive Director, BIC

Speakers:

Paul Gore, EVP and GM of Professional Services, FADEL

Other speakers TBC
