The Bureau international de l'édition française (BIEF) has published new research into how digital rights are being acquired, and how translation rights for digital editions are being licensed, around the world.

By questioning publishers and rights directors in Europe, North America, Asia and Latin America, they reveal how contracts are being drafted, how authors are being remunerated, and how pricing policy is evolving.

Among the findings, it's notable that whereas the acquisition of digital rights for an augmented version of the work (enhanced or multimedia) was limited in 2011, it had become mainstream by 2013: 58% of publishing houses now obtain the rights holder's agreement to produce enhanced content and 51% obtain the rights to produce multimedia content.
