The trade in rights, the procurement of titles for translation, the licensing of works for audio book adaptations and suchlike - these activities make up the core business of the Frankfurt Book Fair participants. The content business at the Frankfurt Book Fair is focusing increasingly on value addition based on crossmedial approaches to content, projects and book characters, as well as the licensing of brands and characters, both into and out of the publishing world.
The 2014 RDM explored the future of the rights trade in a world of globalised content and highlighted one of the industry’s most interesting rights territories – Spanish-speaking Latin America.
