Limited Rights that a Book Printing House Keep
Origin:Image Printing  Data: 4/4/2011  Keywords: Book Printing House

As the traditional situations, the book printing houses have been in separate ownership and have divided the world English book market between them. For books published on both sides of the Atlantic, the publishers seek exclusive market areas (closed markets) from which the competing editions of the same book are excluded. The exclusive territory was essential to the publisher in Commonwealth, Ireland and South Africa and a few others. The remaining areas are then non-exclusive to either where UK and WE editions of the same book are in direct competition. Canadian rights were exclusively retained by UK publishers on their own originated books, and by US publishers on theirs. For some books this broad division still persists and can affect the way agents and packagers grant rights to publishers, and the way publishers trade books between themselves. For example, a UK publisher holding world rights could either sell its own edition to the USA through its related US firm, or license the rights to a US publisher, in which case the US exclusive, non-exclusive, and excluded territories would be negotiated. Conversely a UK publisher may buy a US-originated book from a US publisher or author represented by an agent, and its rights and territories would also be carefully defined.

This traditional territorial split in English language publishing of exclusive, non-exclusive (open market) and excluded territories is threatened by actions of governments, consumer pressure groups and internet traders. By the late 1960s, India became an unofficial open market. Singapore legislated itself into the open market in the mid-1980s. In 1991 Australia required local publication to occur within 30 days of first publication, in effect from the publication date of the US edition, if the UK publisher was to maintain its exclusive rights. In 1998 New Zealand declared itself an open market.

Book printing companies offer you some money and a great deal of prestige. Since they were established in the mid-20s, the Book-of-the-Month-Club (BOMC) and the Literary Guild (each with over a million members) have been helping their members by selecting the best books of the thousands available at lower than normal prices. Now there are more than 200 book clubs moving over $500 million worth of books each year, most of which cater to highly specialized groups.
