by language
3 Selling an e-book : Establishing cross-border
access within Europe
• The publisher acquires rights for a book in a given language for all
territories

• The publisher has a selling contract with the retailer, setting selling
conditions within the European territory

• The publisher sends country codes in e-book metadata
• These are the actual countries where the book can be sold by
the retailer
• It allows to deal with limitations for the few cases in which they
may exist (e.g. when rights are split between different
publishers)

• The retailer sells from one store all over Europe, or on localised
stores (opening of these stores being their decision), or redirects
4 customer to a "semi-global" store
