We switched to Frankfurt Rights 9 months ago and are thrilled about the reduced workload. The customers accepted the transition very well, the contracts can be closed easily and quickly, and we have more time for other projects. In fact, it was great that we switched to Frankfurt Rights last year, since I am currently not in the office and wouldn’t be able to send the permissions out on paper. With IPR, however, it works flawlessly. Overall, the change was more than worth it and we spend considerably less time issuing permissions than before.
Loewe Verlag was founded in 1863 by Ferdinand Loewe. In 1965, the Loewe Verlag acquired its current shape, which has allowed it to become one of the largest and most successful publishers of books for children and young people in the German-speaking area. Loewe seeks to provide quality books that enrich the lives of children and young people. The aim is to encourage children to read and improve their reading skills.
“Frankfurt Rights helps us to handle the administrative part of the reprint permissions quickly and effectively. Through the platform we quickly receive all the relevant information concerning the inquiry. This saves important time for other foreign rights projects.”

"Frankfurt Rights provides an easy to use platform for both sellers and buyers which CABI uses as its main marketplace for selling book rights and has contracted a number of translations of its titles through the platform. This has saved hugely on staff time for a small team, which is a definite plus for us, and the process is pretty straightforward and easy to administer. The Frankfurt Rights team is quick to respond to queries and the platform is a great way to showcase our titles and market them to a wider audience than would have been the case previously. We are happy to recommend Frankfurt Rights for selling book rights."

The name Carl Hanser stands for a publishing house with a variety that is second to none. The range spans from picture books, children’s and young adult literature to contemporary literature from all regions of the world. This literary program is complemented by classic literature from international authors and nonfiction books that impart knowledge and initiate discussions.
“IPR allow us to simplify and standardize how we process reprint requests. Our customers can purchase licenses without waiting for confirmation from us, and we can concentrate on more complex special cases, which are often more interesting. This is how licensees and licensors profit from the opportunities that Frankfurt Rights’s automated permissions tools offer.”
