Video of Rights Sales Manager Webinar with Lynette Owen now online
The value of rights income has increased dramatically due to growing format and delivery options and the expansion of global market opportunities.
The sale of physical books and journals has begun a relentless shift to the sale of content in multiple forms, with finer division of regional rights becoming the de-facto standard.
Given the need to manage more opportunities, have real-time visibility of your organization’s rights inventory, and be aware of offers in your rights pipeline, it is no longer realistic to manage these processes with spreadsheets and ring binders, but with technology that provides you with the real time visibility to your rights portfolio.
In October, Klopotek held a webinar to introduce our recently launched STREAM application, Rights Sales Manager - our new web application designed specifically to provide publishers with the necessary visibility to their rights inventory, and the ability to effectively track registered interest and options to the point of contract negotiations and agreement.
This webinar featured an introduction by renowned rights and copyright expert Lynette Owen.
Lynette discussed the dramatic changes in the rights landscape in recent years and the importance of having the appropriate tools and technology to leverage the growth of rights opportunities created by digital publishing, the growing demand for custom product and the ability to manage the increase in rights opportunities these changes have created.
The Rights Sales Manager is a browser-based solution on a cloud-centric technology platform, Klopotek STREAM, providing smart and simple user interaction across multiple desktop and mobile devices.
