Can anyone provide a list of the different publishing rights with an explanation of what they mean? I think this would be really useful for new and experienced authors, especially with the advent of digital rights. It seems to be a bit of a grey area and still confuses me.
I'm putting this in the WM/WN category as I think it would be a useful article in there too.
I'm also interested personally as an editor as I'm going to publish an anthology of entries from the first year of my weekly flash fiction/poetry challenge from my blog - definitely on Kindle but hopefully in print too. It will obviously only include work from those who agree - I'm contacting every contributor individually. What I'm not sure about is although the antho will be published from the UK, the contributors come from across the globe - US, Canada, Sweden, Australia etc. I'm assuming it's where it's published that matters, even if it is then available on Amazon.com/Barnes and Noble etc in the US.
All help and advice welcome. Many thanks.
