2010 International seminar Quick Rights
The Seminar, jointly organized by the Bologna Children’s Book Fair and the Frankfurt Book Fair, will be focusing on selling translations rights as licences and co-editions. It has been scheduled on Monday March 22nd, at Room Concerto (Services Centre).

In the course of a day, the aim of the Quick Rights International Seminar is to improve and expand upon participant’s knowledge of the different ways and means in which rights are traded – whether buying or selling – and to provide a forum in which particular and general issues can be addressed, discussed and answered. The seminar will cover key contractual points, royalty calculations, co-edition pricing, terms of trade, scheduling, and the lifecycle of a typical rights sale.
The seminar, held in English, will be lead by Ed Glover and by the guest speaker Susanne Koppe.
