Don't overlook publishing careers in the areas of rights and permissions--from selling and buying permissions for 3rd-party material, to rights management, to the deals made in subrights, there are a lot of varied aspects to the field. Hear from fellow publishing professionals, who will describe what they do and how their company's needs are changing, and answer questions from the audience. Admission is free, but please do register so that we can notify you of any changes (such as inclement weather cancellation).
Copyright Clearance Center will provide refreshments and briefly describe the ways that they work with publishers to remove friction in the rights marketplace.
