Subsidiary Considerations: Audio Book Rights - podcast

Judy Klein, agent and rights consultant, discusses audiobook rights and where she sees audiobook trends headed in the future. Audiobook rights are an area of subsidiary rights that will continue to grow. Digital downloads are the way of the future, but people still want to listen to books. The money that people earn from audio rights may be smaller, because the market isn’t as concentrated as it used to be, but they will remain very important. Libraries will continue to play a big part. Authors need to pay particular attention to their audio rights and make sure that someone is cultivating the opportunity represented by audio rights. Audiobooks are going to continue to evolve. There are going to be lots of different ways to make money from audio content, and we don’t even know what a lot of them are yet.
