The movement to digital goods, streaming, print-on-demand and subscription content has changed the landscape for authors. Whereas before, one had to go through agents and publishing companies, it has been possible for authors for some years now to publish a book – whether fiction or non-fiction – themselves and sell it worldwide. Publishers, who cater to this market, have come up with diverse business models to connect the subscription models on the consumer’s end to the independent authors. This flexibility challenges authors to think about their Intellectual Property rights, especially when acting in a global market.
