BISG Launches Digital Content Subscription Research Study

“The Book Industry Study Group (BISG) is pleased to announce a major new research initiative to study subscription models of selling published content. Given the success of digital subscription services in the film, television, and music industries, publishing industry stakeholders have wondered how and when these services will affect book content distribution. While the range of possible models is vast, it is unclear whether the current needs and trends suggest a “Netflix” model with a deep and broad catalog or whether more focused verticals will continue to develop. And what are the attitudes of agents, authors, publishers, and librarians toward these new distribution models? What factors will motivate or dissuade them from participating?” (via BISG)
