As digital hits the big time, Authors and Publishers are beginning to release cross-platform projects that develop major brands, delight audiences and generate real revenues. At the same time, stakeholders are being challenged to create new business models, negotiate complex rights issues, realize the business potential of emerging tech platforms and ensure that they retain participation in the cross-platform brands they create. On this panel, we join three top digital dealmakers to discuss what kinds of deals are working, how publishing is interacting with Hollywood today, and how Authors and Publishers can profit from the transmedia boom.
