IPR License deals with whole-book rights and distinguishes between 11 different types:
Right to publish in print format.
Right to publish in digital format.
Rights common to high profile non-fiction. They are usually sold to newspapers/magazines prior to publication.
Second Serialisation rights are similar to First Serial except that they happen later.
TV, Film & Dramatisation
Rights cover companies who want to dramatise your work for television, film or radio play.
Right to cover publication of condensed or abridged versions of your book.
Radio & TV Straight Reading
A straight reading for Radio and TV is different from a TV or film dramatisation and can be sold separately.
Right for Book Clubs to recieve high discounts from publishers in exchange for committing to a certain number of copies.
Right to record the full, verbatim text of your book for sale on tape, CD or digital download. Abridged rights can also be sold.
Right to print in large print format for those unable to access regular print.
Anthology & Quotation
Right to grant permission for another publication to quote from/include work in an anthology
