If you own the rights to publishing and selling the author’s work does the author own anything when it comes to the property they created? Or is the author to give up all creative rights and ownership to the property the moment he or she signs on with you?

Hi Evan,

The author does not own the rights for the particular scripts which are under the contract. We own exclusive rights of your works if you work for us since we are buying the scripts 😉

All the best!

If you own the rights to the material is their any chance that you’ll be selling some of your material in a hard copy format, specifically a graphic novel format (either hard cover or soft cover), after all Print on Demand has come a long way in the last few years & I know I prefer hardcopy over digital material as a personal preference.

We are planning to sell printed copies in the future but it won’t happen during this or next year since we have other high-priority projects before.
