Guest Post: Should Writers be Paid for their eBooks Lent by Libraries?

Guest Post: Should Writers be Paid for their eBooks Lent by Libraries? | Ebook and Publishing | Scoop.it
Editor's Note: The following post concerns a topic which might be unfamiliar to US readers: Public Lending Rights. This is a program where libraries pay authors and publishers each time one of their books are borrowed by a patron. The US is one of the few English-speaking countries which does not have PLR, but it is common in Europe and in Great Britain's former colonies. When libraries lend books to the public, authors and publishers receive remuneration from the Government under the Lending Rights schemes, but this is not the case when libraries lend e-books. Is this fair? This year, the government has distributed almost A$22 million under these Public Lending Rights and Educational Lending Rights Schemes. For each book in public library collections, creators receive $2.11 and publishers receive $0.52. The amount that each claimant receives is often not very significant, with the majority of authors receiving between $100-500 annually. Still, a previous study has revealed that this remuneration constitutes the second most important source of income for creators from their creative work. E-books, however, are not covered by these Lending Rights schemes. This may not be a big issue at the moment, since only 3.5% of library holdings are e-books [...]
