The most popular paper book sales digital copyrigh

  • Detail

The digital copyright income from the sale of paper books is not transparent. Digital publishing is becoming more and more popular, but it is difficult for traditional writers to get excited. In 2010, the overall revenue of the digital publishing industry reached 105.1 billion yuan, with an annual growth rate of 49.73%. Such a large absolute value and growth rate have not given traditional writers much share. Many writers have not received digital copyright income. Even if they have, the number is very small. The same is true of famous writers. Traditional writers are full of mistrust of digital book publishing. However, in the face of the big wave of digital publishing, and in the face of the digital publishers who took the initiative to come to the door, the author hesitated. At the same time, he also had a reverse zigzag experimental machine data backup in his heart: the test data can be saved in any hard disk partition. I hope: in the past, digital copyright was like chicken ribs, but it may really bring stable benefits in the future

the income is really poor.

there are not a few writers who make millions a year. However, there are no traditional domestic writers who can make a lot of money from digital copyright. Cheng Sanguo, CEO of Baidao Digital Publishing Research Institute, told it times that the digital publishing income of traditional writers is very small, which can only be regarded as abnormal income

as one of the most famous writers in China, Han Han published his income in 2007. Han Han's annual income from the copyright of paper books is about 2million yuan. Han Han did not disclose how much he earned from the digital copyright. According to Zhanghongbo, executive deputy director of the Association for literary and art works, Han Han's annual income from the digital copyright is more than 1000 yuan

since last year, some writers have criticized the low income of digital copyright. Yi Zhongtian, a scholar, said at the forum of digital copyright research base of Peking University last June that I don't know what digital copyright is. Anyway, I haven't got a penny of digital copyright. Then someone asked him how much he had lost. He smiled and said: maybe he lost another villa! Rao Xueman, a best-selling author, once said that he has signed numerous digital copyright contracts and has only received a few thousand yuan so far. In May this year, in GB 4351, Murong Xuecun even disclosed a shocking news. He signed an exclusive network authorization with Shanda literature to forgive me for reversing the world of mortals, but the share in three years was only 300 yuan. Murong Xuecun said at that time that although he didn't expect much higher income, he didn't expect so little. He was cold when he heard the news

the same is true of Yue Nan, a writer who recently launched the best-selling book "crossing the South and returning to the north". His digital copyright income is pitiful. He complained to. Threeorfour years ago, Yuenan granted the digital copyright of his 10 books to a literature station, which was serialized on the station in the form of chapters. He made consumers Click to read them to get profits, and then shared them. But until now, I have only received about 2000 yuan of money orders. They sent it in two remittances, each of which was only more than 1000 yuan

zhujintai, a Hunan writer, is the most active in safeguarding copyright interests among domestic writers. Previously, he found that his work "notes on chasing dead bodies" had been infringed and pirated on Baidu Library. He took the latter to court and won a compensation of 20000 yuan after reconciliation. If the 20000 yuan is included, Zhu Jintai's digital copyright income is relatively high among domestic writers. But in fact, the revenue from normal digital copyright licensing is very small. Last year, I authorized a new officialdom novel I wrote to a portal for serialization. The revenue is very low, zhujintai told me

most afraid of being divided into opaque ones

because the income is too low, traditional writers have not cared much about digital copyright, or even rejected it. Compared with the trust in traditional publishing houses, writers obviously distrust digital publishing institutions

I have always felt that there are many cheaters in digital publishing companies. They just cheated writers to make money for themselves. At first, they talked about it in a big way, but soon it was revealed. Yue Nan said excitedly. He said that the digital publishing industry is still immature and chaotic. Zhujintai also said that I have talked with my copyright lawyer that digital copyright is still a bit chaotic and the management is very chaotic

both Zhu Jintai and Yue Nan said that they do not believe that digital publishing is mainly because the revenue sharing is very opaque. Although the two sides will agree on the sharing ratio, it is entirely up to the other side to decide how many people read, how many people download and how much the overall income is. For example, the other party said that your book only sold for 1000 yuan this year, and you can't refute him. You simply can't master the specific data, and the amount of income is completely up to the other party the final say. Zhu Jintai said

Yue Nan suggested that writers should be prepared with two hands: seize the down payment and look down on the sharing. Digital publishing is OK, but it requires a down payment, or deposit, that satisfies the writers. The score is a matter of no spectrum, and the score is completely controlled by the other party. Unlike physical books, you can go to the printing house to check how much they have been printed, but we can't check the digital copyright

who can make writers believe that although they are excluded, digital books are the trend of the times. Traditional writers are having a slight change in their attitude towards digital copyright because they do not use digital displays and some electronic components: digital copyright will not generate any income if it is put in their own pocket. You might as well try it

in July last year, Reed Exhibitions, the sponsor of an, a very influential literary broker in the United States, made an in-depth investigation on 56 well-known vehicle enterprises at home and abroad. After that, drew Huaili announced that he would abandon traditional publishers and set up a publishing company specializing in digital versions of modern literary classics. He launched the first batch of 20 works by 17 famous writers and sold them exclusively to Amazon's Kindle e-book platform at the price of $9.99 per novel. At the same time, more and more writers directly sign publishing agreements with e-book institutions, or sell the copyright of paper books and e-books separately, instead of selling all the copyright to traditional publishers

in China, many writers are moving closer to digital publishing. In September last year, Yi Nengjing released her new book freedom of the soul and put the electronic version on the sweet potato. According to Shanda, a large number of contemporary famous writers' works, including Wang Meng, LiuzhenYun and Maijia, have signed contracts with Shanda literature to operate the electronic copyright sales of their works

at present, I have the digital copyright of my four books. Now several companies have come to talk with me, but they have not done a good job. Zhujintai said. Zhu Jintai is very familiar with a publishing house in Hunan. People from the publishing house told him that they had a book written by an unknown author on the reading platform. Within a few months, the author was divided into tens of thousands of yuan. This makes Zhu Jintai realize that digital copyright can produce economic benefits, and it is a valuable economic benefit. Anyway, it's no use putting my digital copyright here. As long as I can standardize the operation, I'm still willing to cooperate. Even for apple, which he is entrusting a lawyer to sue, Zhu Jintai does not exclude cooperation with it. We are not enemies, but we should solve the problem on the premise of abiding by the law

although he doesn't trust digital publishing, Yuenan is also making frequent attempts. Now the industry is becoming more and more popular and the competition is more fierce. Enterprises may be more self disciplined. A few months ago, he cooperated with a network company to grant the digital copyright of the two books to the other party. The other party will operate on the mobile reading platform of the telecom operator. At the end of the year, he will share the income. Now, the amount of income is unknown
