    It includes a "Legal Developments" introduction giving an overview of existing and forthcoming legislation (UK and international). It also covers new initiatives undertaken by the industry and acts as an essential checklist for industry professionals. The impact of these developments have been updated in the precedents, their accompanying notes and appendices.

    It also includes an "Introduction to Electronic Precedents" which highlights the continuing developments in the field of technology and their impact on licensing practice and contractual wording.

    For the eleventh edition all the precedents, explanatory notes and appendices have been thoroughly revised to take account of the latest developments including:

    - Coverage of podcasts
    - Inclusion of a new precedent on Open Access book author agreements
    - Coverage of audio deals, including arrangements with narrators
    - Precedent for a ghostwriter

    Whether an experienced drafter of publishing agreements or new to the industry Clark's Publishing Agreements will prove invaluable in ensuring that your publishing agreements are expertly and effectively drafted.

On purchase, you will be provided with a code and a web link from which the precedents can be downloaded in a generic format such as *.doc which will be compatible with all operating systems.
