More on the Frankfurt Book Fair

via the October bulletin released by the Book Industry Study Group (BISG).

The report estimated the event to have hosted nearly 300,000 visitors and more than 7,000 exhibitors from 100 countries, with nearly 200 delegates who came from around the world specifically to hear details of supply chain initiatives at the 28th annual International Supply Chain Specialists Meeting.

Newly introduced at the event by Mark Bide of UK based Rightscom was ACAP (Automated Content Access Protocol), "an initiative that aims to standardize the way license terms are communicated between publishers and search engines such as Google and Yahoo. Sponsored by the International Publishers Association, the European Publishers Council and the World Association of Newspapers, ACAP will launch a 12-month pilot project in November that will involve a number of major publishers and at least one search engine."

According to the BISG bulletin, all presentations from the book fair will be available at EDItEUR in the near future.
