How could the NYCIP possibly make a perfect Book Fair weekend even better? All exhibiting publishers are invited to take part in the Inaugural NYCIP Mini-Rights Fair!

**WHEN: Friday, November 30th, 1 – 6pm

**WHERE: NYCIP, 20 West 44th St., New York City

Sub-rights and foreign rights are an extremely lucrative additional revenue stream for independent publishers. At our first Mini-Rights Fair on the afternoon of Friday, November 30th, we hope to assist you by supplying essential information on how to increase your rights sales, as well as providing a collegial atmosphere to network with some of the movers and shakers in the sub-rights and foreign rights industries. Questions addressed will include:

  • What are the different types of subsidiary rights?
  • How can I increase sales to these markets?
  • What are the best international markets for my books?
  • Should I be attending international rights fairs?
  • How does licensing actually work?
  • Should I be granting electronic rights to my books?

Pat Schroeder, President of AAP will also be giving a keynote address to conclude the afternoon’s program and kick off the Pre-Book Fair Cocktail Reception. Participation is currently limited to Book Fair exhibitors and is FREE. See below for program details.

  • [1:00 – 1:45pm] Publishers set up a selection of books in the Library and Balcony exhibition spaces 
  • [1:45pm] Brief Remarks on Copyright from Christopher Kenneally of the Copyright Clearance Center 
  • [2:00 – 3:30pm] How to Get the Most out of Your Foreign and Sub-Rights Sales: A panel with some of the country’s leading rights agents 
  • [3:30 – 4:30pm] Network with Foreign Rights and Sub-Rights Agents
