We offer a variety of practical advice to the publishing industry, which is undergoing many changes.
Adapting to Changes
In recent years, the publishing industry has seen fast paced developments of electronic publication, and it has become necessary to respond to various agreements associated with the publication of e-books. In addition to negotiating contracts for electronic publishing with domestic and overseas platforms and providing know-how on copyright processing with writers and others, who have often been engaged without contracts, we also provide advice on overseas publishing contracts.
Secondary Use
As the number of mangas and novels increasingly demands the creation of original video content, such as movies, television dramas and theaters, publishers are required to enter into contracts with various players. We provide advice on contractual legal matters, such as original option contracts and original licensing contracts, as well as business advice that takes into account industry practices.
