Purchasing rights of music works as a means of investment – as Michael Jackson did to the majority of the Beatles’ catalog, is not a novel concept in the music publishing industry, yet in the book publishing world where people are reluctant to part with their copyrights, this concept still remains fresh and rarely-touched. 

Scott Hoffman and his team at ILP (International Literary Properties) not only think about it, but they also act on it. He tells us in the conversation how ILP was founded, how it works in partnership with various parties (publishers, authors, and literary agents), and how it has established its position in the value-added chain. With extensive real cases, he explains to us the ways that ILP makes long-term investments in literary estates (especially on backlists) and how they maximize the value of these time-honored works, as well as how these practices make ILP a meaningful complement to the value-added chain in rights management.
