'We are all in the copyright business'

10 November 2008

'Digital activity is critical to the evolution of publishing and in children's we are best placed to break this out because our audience is already there, growing up with it. I produce books and love working with great authors, and whether that's online or in print doesn't matter to me. What matters is that their work reaches as many children as possible. As a children's publisher we have to be aware of, and embrace, as many models as possible. We are all in the copyright business and we have to work out how to make the right connections.'

Ann-Janine Murtagh, Publisher of Children's Fiction and Picture books at HarperCollins UK, in Publishing News
