The Contracts Committee provides general contractual guidance to AAR Agent Members
to help in their individual negotiations with publishers. The Committee drafts checklists
and charts and issues alerts
for Agent Members regarding all aspects of publishing contracts,
including electronic rights clauses, audio book contracts, out of print language and
changes in the industry landscape that might affect publishing agreements.
The Committee also meets with publishers on behalf of AAR members to discuss
changes to the publisher's contract boilerplate.
