Rental Copyrights: Could They Change the Shape of the Korean Comics Market?
Here is a nice, short article on how a "rental copyright" solution could shake up a Korean comics rental market already thought to be somewhat weak. Many comics are read in various Asia countries through rentals at a shop or store rather than through purchases, an extended profit from individual books for which the creators currently receive nothing. Although there are no serious rental revenues on comics in the United States, similar rewards have been sought by recording artists on re-sold CDs.
