BOOKS etc. will begin the partnership by offering all of the publishers it works with the opportunity to sign-up up to IPR License with a reduction of 15% of the annual membership charge. There will also be tie-in promotional opportunities through the partnership.

Michael Webber, Chief Operating Officer of BOOKS etc, commented, “The success of the BOOKS etc. brand is based on partnership. This includes with the many publishers we work with and we are now delighted to extend this to working with IPR License.”

Tom Chalmers, Managing Director of IPR License, added: “The reaction since launching IPR License has been fantastic. The platform fills a vital gap in the market for publishers and literary agents, and we are very excited to be working with BOOKS etc. – two dynamic companies working in partnership.”
