Digital Publishing NZ AnnouncementCopyright Licensing Limited has been engaged with the New Zealand publishing sector to energise digital in New Zealand since 2008. The in 2010 we established Digital Publishing New Zealand (DPNZ) as a joint venture between the NZ Society of Authors and the Publishers Association of NZ. Over the past 2 years, DPNZ has worked alongside independent publishers and authors and has successfully converted a large volume of previously published NZ titles into ebooks. It has been an eventful couple of years and in the short time since DPNZ was established, the digital publishing world has gone through some exciting changes. With the increase in demand for books in electronic formats, we are now seeing some of the big names in the publishing world step into the local market in search of content for distribution. The Future of DPNZWe have invested significant resource into mapping out the future for DPNZ. An externally commissioned business case has proven that digital distribution is moving rapidly internationally and that the volume of titles published by independent publishers in NZ is such that an unsustainable level of investment would be required by DPNZ over a prolonged timeframe. In light of this, the decision has been reached that DPNZ cannot, and should not, try to compete with major international distributors. Rather, New Zealand publishers and authors would be best channelled into working with more established providers who can offer a comprehensive distribution solution throughout the world. Where to from here?DPNZ will complete the conversion process of the titles that have already been approved and deliver the electronic files to publishers and authors. After this time DPNZ’s services will cease to exist. Over the coming weeks, we will provide full details of the distribution opportunities that are going to be available in the New Zealand market. The past few years have been a rollercoaster for publishing worldwide. DPNZ and its shareholders believe that the investment and support Copyright Licensing Ltd has made into digital publishing in NZ has given the sector a comprehensive step-up that will enable NZ publishers and authors to participate in evolving the ebook world.
