Book Rights And Licensing: An International Overview For Authors


Joanna Penn and Tom Chalmers of IPR tell you what you need to know about selling your books around the world: The fact is that many indie authors don’t just own a potentially valuable book, they own the rights to their work and these can be licensed to produce the same book, in English, into different territories around the world – whether US, Australia or India. And rights can also be licensed for the book to be published and translated into different languages – French, Spanish, German and, back to India – Hindi, Marathi, and many more besides.
