Discoverability vs. DRM: An expert discussion at the Publishing Business Virtual Conference & ExpoAugust 30, 2012
Join us Thu., Sept. 13, at the free Publishing Business Virtual Conference and Expo as a panel of industry experts explores important questions around the paradox that is Discoverability Vs. DRM in the ebook age. Christopher Kenneally, Brian O'Leary, Peter McCarthy and Patricia Payton will attempt to get to the bottom of the issues around getting your content discovered without giving it all away:

In this session you’ll learn how to:
• Balance the requirements of IP protection and discoverability
• Generate buzz and sales through content marketing, or offering teasers of your to the marketplace for free
