What are you not being told?

5 Things Your Royalty Statements Don't Tell YouYour royalty statements only tell part of the story regarding the success of your textbook. Join Juli Saitz, Senior Managing Director, Ankura Consulting Group at 2pm ET on Thursday, July 23rd to understand “5 Things Your Royalty Statements Don’t Tell You“.

The goal of this next session in our TAA Summer Webinar Series is to help authors understand what information is provided by their publishers and help identify gaps in that information.

Saitz is a CPA and Senior Managing Director at Ankura Consulting Group. She leads the contract and royalty compliance practice at Ankura and has extensive experience serving clients including several textbook authors as well as multi-national corporation licensors. Her work in this area includes developing and implementing royalty compliance programs and performing audits of licensees around the world.

Saitz has helped authors and corporate clients recover millions of dollars in asserting their audit rights related to licensed copyrights, trademarks and patents. She is focused on the shift in the publishing industry to electronic content delivery methods and adaptive learning platforms. In addition, she has served as a damages expert in matters involving royalty disputes in the publishing industry.

This discussion will help authors be better informed so they know how to ask publishers more informed questions about adoptions, sales and royalties.

Following the main presentation, TAA President, Laura Frost, will facilitate a discussion to bring out further questions and encourage attendees to share their own experiences. We encourage you to comment on how new pricing models are affecting your royalties, and how you think higher education – and educational resources – may evolve in the post-COVID environment.

Register now for next week’s session to learn more about what your royalty statements don’t tell you.
