Looking over the fence: Who receives what from a book?
The Kurt Wolff Foundation has published an illustrative overview of the book industry that uses a literary title as an example to show how the costs and revenues of a book are shared. The overview also shows the – not entirely unknown – fact that book authors are usually significantly better remunerated than game authors. This is partly due to the fixed retail prices for books, but also to clearly defined bases for calculating royalties. The SAZ will shortly be presenting a detailed statement with proposals in the interests of game authors.
