Ashgate & Gower Publishing to add 11,000 titles to IPR License rights platform

Posted at 12:20PM Tuesday 22 Jan 2013

IPR License, the global digital platform for the licensing of book rights, has confirmed Ashgate & Gower Publishing as a member and that it will be adding 11,000 book rights to the system as the publisher looks to maximise their potential in the international rights market.

With over 13 million records now on the IPR License platform, rights-holders assign records to their account and add new records – whether already published or not – as well as adding additional information to their records.

Those looking to purchase rights can use the search facility to locate work of specific interest to them which is available to license in their territory and then contact the rights-holder directly through the messaging system.

In addition, the platform highlights those records receiving the most interest, recently added and recently licensed, and sends a weekly bulletin to all subscribers.

Tom Chalmers, Managing Director of IPR License, commented:

"Q4 was a great quarter for us as we signed up a number of publishers as well as adding lots of authors to the platform. The confirmation of Ashgate & Gower Publishing and the fact that it is adding 11,000 book rights illustrates the vast potential associated with the international rights marketplace. Looking forward, we see 2013 as our breakthrough year and with many more high profile partnerships already in the pipeline we have great hope and expectation for the year ahead."
