Oct 10 – Oct 16, 2011 Edition TOC Frankfurt Launches with Global eBook Market Survey

Sebastopol, CA/Authorlink News/October 10, 2011—O’Reilly Media launches TOC Frankfurt with the publication of The Global eBook Market: Current Conditions & Future Projections. The first installment in the TOC white paper series, the paper is available for free download from O’Reilly at

The Global eBook Market provides a broad survey of data on emerging e-book markets across Europe, Brazil, and China. For each market, the study portrays characteristic developments and distinct features such as regulatory and cultural parameters, the impact of global players such as Amazon, Google, Apple, Sony or Kobo, as well as an outlook on current trends and patterns. Key data on the more mature e-book markets in the United States and United Kingdom serve as benchmarks.

This “Global eBook Market” study is a first step towards mapping the development ahead primarily using actual data rather than forecasts, by tapping into a wide array of sources, strengthened by expert interviews. Updates and close ups on additional markets are prepared for the months and years ahead.

The conversations from TOC Frankfurt continue at TOC New York 2012, February 13-15 in New York City. Early discounts apply to registration until November 10.
