Book to E-book: What You Should Know about Electronic Rights
E-books are the fastest growing area of the industry, compelling most presses to convert backlist and publish new titles in electronic format. But do your author contracts give you permission to publish in these new formats? Have you established a viable royalty structure for electronic editions? Do you have rights to publish interior photos in e-book editions? How will you price those e-books? Panelists will discuss the most pressing issues facing acquiring editors, rights managers, and business managers as our publications go digital.
Chair: Vicky Wells, Director of Contracts and Subsidiary Rights, University of North Carolina Press
Panelists: Laura Bost, Rights and Permissions Manager, University of Texas Press; Krista Coulson, Electronic Publishing Manager, University of Wisconsin Press
