Ten Principles for Fair Contracts for Authors

Thanks to its members, FIA has now arrived at Ten Principles for Fair Contracts.

A work in progress for the past year, this document reflects – in ten points – what IAF’s membership feels most strongly should and should not be contained in the contracts in which authors agree to the exploitation of their work through publication or production in any form, be that as a book, an ebook or other medium. The aim is that such agreements enable authors to be fairly recognised and rewarded for the success of that work.
