Training Courses

Publishing Ireland has an extensive training schedule set for the new year including our well received Adobe training sessions with New Horizons. Additional courses will be added as scheduled.

GDPR for Publishers

Do you need to ask everyone to re-subscribe to mailing lists and/ or delete them by a specified date? What measures need to be taken to protect data in hard copy? What is needed to comply with the regulation with Small business e-commerce sites? These are just some of the questions that may arise for publishers both large and small and so Publishing Ireland has teamed up with Frontier Privacy to tackle these issues and to take you through what policies and procedures you need to have in place coming up to the coming into force of the GDPR this coming May.

The Publishing Agreement with Lynette Owen

How do publishers effectivley negotiate the terms of their contracts? The contract forms the nuts and bolts of the publishing industry and Clark’s Publishing Agreements has long been the ‘must have’ legal resource.

Lynette will take you through everything you need to know about the publishing agreement from the granting of rights, warranties and indemnities to dealing with illustrations and the many pitfalls that come from working with royalties.
