The marketplace for publishers to trade rights globally

Key Titles


IPR is the first fully transactional rights and licensing marketplace available within the publishing industry. Established in 2012 to address a specific gap in the market, it provides a dedicated online portal that enables rights holders to complete domestic and international licensing deals.

In May 2015, Frankfurt Book Fair made a significant investment in IPR License, and in April 2016 it acquired control of the company, with the Copyright Clearance Center keeping its minority stake. In June 2017, China South Publishing & Media Group also acquired a part of the company. Rights listings on the IPR platform have been viewed by rights buyers in 185 countries and 161 languages.
