SiNApSE IP Program for Authors and Novelists
“SiNApSE is a Division of BananaIP (BIP) Counsels”
Authorship has transformed substantially during the last decade. The new breed of authors have numerous means and modes of communication at their behest, and unlike earlier, they are no longer dependent on publishers to communicate their work to the public. One report estimates that one book is published every two minutes across the world. Authors and Novelists are connecting with readers and fans like never before, and success is sometimes just a click away. However, the opportunities available for authors and novelists come with a bag of issues, some of which relate to Intellectual Property. The SiNApSE IP Program for Authors and Novelists aims to address some of the said issues, and assist them to effectively protect, manage, license and realize value from their creative works.
