Updating the Rights Solutions Provider Grid

from Brian F. O'Leary, Executive Director

BISG does its most important work in committee. When we’re discussing issues related to metadata, rights, content structure, subject codes, or the overall supply chain, we turn to one or more of our committees to gain an industry perspective on our challenges and opportunities.

In 2017, the rights committee provided two examples of how that process works. At BookExpo last year, we published a ground-breaking report, Publishing Rights: An Untapped Opportunity, that offered six observations about rights and royalties management. When that report showed clear interest in learning more about commercial solutions, the committee surveyed the industry to gather data that became our first overview of the market.

After the solutions “grid” was published, we heard one question more than any other: “How do I get included on the next version?” The committee went to work updating the earlier survey, and today we’re able to announce that the 2018 survey is now open and looking for updates. more
