London, United Kingdom (PressExposure) May 07, 2013 -- IPR License, the global and digital platform for the licensing of book rights, has signed up a raft of publishing houses as a result of a hugely successful London Book Fair.
Amongst the recent publisher additions to the IPR License platform are ICSA, IT Governance, Firecrest, Kube Publishing, Badger Learning together with US-based Lippincott Williams & Wilkins (LWW) and MedKnow, part of global giant Wolters Kluwer Health.
On the back of this positive news IPR has set a revised higher target of having 250 publisher members from 25 different countries by the year-end.
Tom Chalmers, Managing Director of IPR License, commented: "The London Book Fair provided the perfect arena to showcase IPR License to an array of publishing houses and after demonstrating the concept and platform in action, a large number of these conversations have already been converted into sign-ups with many more in the pipeline.
"Events such as the London Book Fair form an integral part of the publishing calendar and provide a great platform for the industry to network and make deals happen. The real highlight for us was the overwhelming interest and enthusiasm showed towards IPR License. It's all well and good knowing that you have a great product but to hear so many people also acknowledge that and endorse our vision for the future provides a massive boost to the business."
Hannah Perrett, Head of Publishing at IT Governance, added: "We are delighted to be working with IPR License. For a publisher like IT Governance, the IPR platform provides an invaluable service by offering increased prominence and additional opportunities for our titles."
