The Current Situation: Opportunity• Digital books now command anywhere from 20-30% of the book market.• There is greater demand and interest in Cross Media publishing than ever before.• The market for Custom Publishing and Course Packs are both growing rapidly.• EPUB 3 has just been released encouraging multi- media production.• Judgments protecting copyright are on the rise. (YouTube, Google, Georgia State etc.)• Speed to market is becoming an essential fact of life in publishing.
  3. 3. The Current Situation: Challenges• Although books are digitalizing at a rapid rate Contracts remain stuck in filing cabinets.• Of the top 16 Publishers only 1 has fully scanned and digitalized their contracts.• More than 50% of major publisher titles information remains in paper only.• Not knowing quickly what Rights and Permissions are owned inhibits growth. (Average turnaround time on Rights is 12-16 weeks)• Inability to digitally access information leads to loss of revenue, misplacement of assets, potential copyright infringement or unneeded licensing fees.
