CMC Rights Exchange – a New Market to Develop New Relationships

CMC Rights Exchange logoHaving listened to the opinions of delegates at the CMC, our Advisory Committee and key industry insiders, we’ve decided to take the initiative and create an “exchange” for trading children’s IP.

As the old model of licensing published content is being more and more replaced by new forms of partnership or service delivery models, so there needs to be a forum to understand, explore and negotiate those new relationships.  To bring agents and publishers together with producers of film, TV, animation, games and apps to build new relationships is the aim of the market.  It will be managed – in the way all CMC events are –  and there’ll be a meeting-booking system that encourages all participants to profile themselves and reveal their reasons for attending.

2_Temple_PlaceFocused, relevant, inclusive and very much aimed at encompassing the new methods of working – the Rights Exchange is a brand new service from the CMC.  And of course we couldn’t resist putting in good dose of Conference content too!

We’ve found a fantastic new venue and the Bookseller Magazine is on board as our media partner.  More info here, and you can register here.

Conference Content 2014

You can catch up on content you missed at CMC.

PowerPoints, audio and video of sessions at the CMC are available, and the list will grow throughout August and September ’14.  We’ve made it session-specific, so just find the event you’re interested in in the sessions list and you’ll find links to the blog report,  downloadable presentations, podcast and video if we have it.  The audio recordings are  all also available on our new podcast website.

Here’s our first full-length video for 2014 – Dylan Collins’s SuperAwesome opening Keynote.
