Makrolog’s e-publishing Framework
• We build e-publishing projects with our own modular system that can be optimized to meet particular needs of any scale.
• Our work is an ideal combination of proprietary developments, and both licensed and open-source products.
• We select tools for your project based on your description of your precise needs.
• Many e-publishing projects are just visions or future hopes.
• Our projects are visionary, but are based on the need for economic viability and long-term success - we can point to many successful projects to prove this.
• Our innovative solutions offer economic benefits, event in the development phase!
Solutions for Rights and Legal Issues
E-publishing confronts publishers with a range of rights and legal issues:
• Is the digitization of my backlist a derivative work?
• What current laws must I consider in the operation of an e-book shop?
• Are their increased liabilities from product offerings in electronic format?
• What legal questions need to be resolved for content sundication?
• What are the best terms for a contract when outsourcing E-book services?
• What are the legal implications for my authors and service agreements of cooperation with 3rd parties such as Amazon or iTunes?
We develop technical solutions for projects with the relevant legal and rights issues in mind, and we support your decisions with well informed advice from a network of experienced experts. Our goal is to help you limit liability and avoid expensive mistakes.
From PDF to E-Book - E-Paper Solutions
• A common question at the beginning of many e-publishing projects: do we have the data we need in the right format?
If not, you can face significant investments in retrospective digitization and conversion (for example to XML). This can present an insuperable barrier to projects with small numbers in niche markets, or highly-specialized academic projects.
Makrolog’s E-Paper solutions permit scalable e-publishing solutions independent from original format, including print back lists, journal archives, PDF files, or highly structured XML.
