“Some changes underway in the U.S. licensed book market pre-date the pandemic but were accelerated by it: changes in the way consumers discover and shop for goods; new sources of discovery and influence; new types of content consumption and audience engagement; and tremendous competition for consumer attention and dollars. If you are a publisher or IP holder, understanding the effect of these market forces on the U.S. licensing landscape is critical.”
