About the Series
As the publishing and other content-rich industries transform to make their products available via newer business models – such as subscriptions, rentals, ad-driven, serialization and custom assembly – royalty management processes and systems need to also transform to support new digital compensation models and improve transparency to authors and rights holders. Traditional royalty management approaches, not designed for these new business models, will lack the critical capabilities necessary to properly manage compensation and rights. In order for publishers to quickly react to market demands, stay competitive, attract readers and authors, and reduce operational costs, it is essential to transform royalty operations alongside of the content and business transformation initiatives.
