Main Elements in a Book Printing Contract (Sector 1)
Origin:Image Printing  Data: 4/4/2011  Keywords: Book Printing Contract

There are many elements in a book printing contract as below. The following are the items covered in a typical contract between the author and the publisher. Of main interest to the author will be the level of the royalty and any advance. Other clauses that can cause dispute include any option on next work of author, royalties for new editions, payment for illustrations, and the number of free copies for the author.

The date, names of the parties to the contract, and the title are stated too.

Grant of Author
The author usually grants to the publisher the sole and exclusive license and right to publish the book in volume form (print and electronic), in all languages, for the full term of copyright (its life plus 70 years), throughout the world. By granting a license, the author retains ownership of the copyright. Sometimes authors, such as contributors to multi-authored books or to highly illustrate general books, assign their copyright, thereby passing ownership and all control to the publisher. The grant of electronic rights may include in any media not yet invented, or other similar phrase, to cover the publisher against future technological developments.

Warranty of Author
The author warrants that they control the rights granted, that the work is original (not a plagiarism), does not contain defamatory, libelous or unlawful matter; and will indemnify the publisher for any loss or damages.

Competing works
The author agrees not to write a directly competing work for another publisher.

The contract will detail the length of the manuscript (preferably in words not pages), the delivery date and form. It will also cover the responsibility for supplying illustrations and the index, and for obtaining and paying for third-party copyright material (unless otherwise agreed). The publisher reserves the right not to publish if the delivered manuscript is overdue or does not conform to a previously agreed brief.
