Must-have Clauses for Digital Rights Contracts

There's a must-read post about digital backlists over on Michael Stackpole's blog. I learned at least 5 different things.

I knew it would happen. It had to happen. There is money to be made and whenever there is money to be made, people will rise up to make it. I don’t, in this instance, refer to hardworking authors, but the parasites who are looking to make a fast buck by making low-rent investments in properties they believe they’ll be able to exploit.

To what am I referring?

Digital rights to authors’ backlists.

Nate Hoffelder is the founder and editor of The Digital Reader: "I've been into reading ebooks since forever, but I only got my first ereader in July 2007. Everything quickly spiraled out of control from there. Before I started this blog in January 2010 I covered ebooks, ebook readers, and digital publishing for about 2 years as a part of MobileRead Forums. It's a great community, and being a member is a joy. But I thought I could make something out of how I covered the news for MobileRead, so I started this blog."
