One of the world’s well-known sources for global books rights is the IPR License organization, making international rights deals possible for authors, agents, and publishers. The organization announced today that it has a new item to offer rights holders, namely a desktop solution to rights selling called Trade Rights.
According to an announcement from IPR License, “Previously only available exclusively to members, the platform has now opened its doors to allow access for all interested parties across the industry looking to buy and sell whole book rights on a global scale. This will allow a wide-range of parties to make offers on titles and complete full transactions to help increase existing, and create new, revenue streams for all links in the publishing chain.”
Until now, international book fairs were some of the only opportunities in the industry for international publishers to acquire rights to titles. This streamlined solution makes rights sales possible in an ongoing way, ideally speeding up the time to market for readers around the world to enjoy new titles.
Tom Chalmers, Managing Director at IPR License, stated in the announcement, “It’s evident from speaking to publishers all over the world that they clearly recognise the current wealth of opportunities available in rights and licensing. And that rights deals are no longer solely centred around book fairs and contact books. Rights will continue to be a personal business but through IPR License leads and revenue can be maximised 24/7 thanks to the ability to now complete deals from a desktop.”
The ability to list a title for sale through Trade Rights is only available to members of the IPR License platform. This latest offering is part of IPR’s ongoing features updates that will launch throughout the rest of the year.
