Electronic Rights of an Author in a Book Printing Contract
Origin:Image Printing  Data: 4/4/2011  Keywords: Book Printing Contract

In a book printing contract, the contract typically is shorter than one from a publisher, reflecting the more limited grant of rights by the author. The educational, academic and STM book printing company included electronic rights in their contracts with authors. Many of the main publishers had secured electronic rights from authors on tens of thousands of old contracts which had made no previous provision for electronic rights. The learned journal publishers are also free to publish electronically since the contributing authors usually assign their rights to the publisher, or society. Similarly, many of the book packagers and highly illustrated publishers own the copyright in the text, and in the commissioned artwork and photography, through assignments.

The trade publishers, however, do not generally hold electronic rights in their backlist books. Agents have withheld them. Agents do not agree with the view that the volume rights must include eBooks, and license them separately, possibly to another publisher, as well as licensing other kinds of electronic rights, such as turning the book into an interactive game. The royalties paid on eBook sales range from the rate payable on the printed book to as high as 30 percent of net receipts.

The exploitation of electronic rights in trade publishing is in flux. The inclusion of text extracts and photographs in many books across most sectors of publishing is another impediment to the e-publishing of the backlist and of new books. The rights holders, both printed book publishers and picture agencies, can be resistant to granting electronic rights or charge exorbitant fees in effect a refusal. Thus eBooks may be devoid of third-party material, and e-publishing is likely to benefit most publishers and rights owners who control very pure products, comparatively free of third-party content.

Authors' rights are a part of copyright law. The term is a direct translation of the French term droit dauteur, and is generally used in relation to the copyright laws of civil law countries and in European Union law. Authors' rights are internationally protected by the Berne Convention for the Protection of Literary and Artistic Works and by other similar treaties. "Author" is used in a very wide sense, and includes composers, artists, sculptors and even architects: in general, the author is the person whose creativity led to the protected work being created, although the exact definition varies from country to country for book printing services.

Authors' rights have two distinct components: the economic rights in the work and the moral rights of the author. The economic rights are a property right which is limited in time and which may be transferred by the author to other people in the same way as any other property. They are intended to allow the author or their holder to profit financially from his or her creation, and include the right to authorize the reproduction of the work in any form. The authors of dramatic works also have the right to authorize the public performance of their works. The protection of the moral rights of an author is based on the view that a creative work is in some way an expression of the author's personality: the moral rights are therefore personal to the author, and cannot be transferred to another person except by testament when the author dies. The moral rights regime differs greatly between countries, but typically includes the right to be identified as the author of the work and the right to object to any distortion or mutilation of the work which would be prejudicial to his or her honour or reputation. In many countries, the moral rights of an author are perpetual.
