Agent Wylie Angers French Publishers

Agent Andrew Wylie has moved to reassure French publishers over electronic rights after a number ceased trading with his agency following the agent's decision to set up as a digital publisher earlier this year. One, Antoine Gallimard (pictured), described Wylie's move as "unacceptable". Gallimard is one of 50 signatories to an open letter published in today's Bookseller Daily that warns agents against splitting digital and print rights. A number will meet Wylie in Frankfurt to discuss the row.
