“From the debut of the iPad to MacMillan’s challenge of Amazon’s pricing model for Kindle book downloads, the news in recent weeks on the multiple fronts in the electronic publishing revolution has raised many questions and heightened concerns for the future of our industry. Without any doubt, E-books Wars is the first break-out story of the year in book publishing. And we can expect it to remain a leading headline-maker throughout 2010.
As host and producer for “Beyond the Book,” I take seriously our commitment at the non-profit Copyright Clearance Center to serve authors and publishers with innovative licensing solutions that lead to expanded markets and systems that facilitate content reuse. The Beyond the Book series strives to be a premium resource for knowledge on the latest business issues facing today’s dynamic publishing industry – from initial research to final publication, and beyond.”
