London-based IPR License was founded in 2012 by Tom Chalmers. As director of an independent publishing company, Chalmers was aware of the lack of a dedicated trading service for literary rights-holders. The predominance of book fairs and back-and-forth negotiations between rights agents and commissioning editors continued to leave a gap in the marketplace for the listing and trading of content rights.
With this in mind, IPR License was born, leading the way for fully-transactional online based global rights-trading platforms. We are currently in the process of rolling out its latest functionality which will allow all interested parties to make offers on titles and complete full transactions therefore increasing existing, and creating new, revenue streams.
We’re currently in discussion over a number of major partnerships, which are expected to be rolled out throughout 2014 as we look to become established as the industry standard tool when it comes to rights and licensing a variety of content.
