Lincoln
.Palazzo founder and MD ColinWebb has already closed deals inFrance, Germany, Sweden andthe US, where Sterling PresidentMarcus Leaver said: “I’m thrilledthat Sterling and Palazzo arecollaborating on yet anothersure-fi re hit, the latest in a longline of winners we have publishedtogether. It’s a personal pleasureto work with such good friends asColin and Pam as they celebratethe tenth anniversary of Palazzo!”Palazzo’s latest project,

peaking from three diverseperspectives – fi lm and V,the music business, andpublishing – the morning speakerskicked off this year’s London Book Fair Digital Conference with somecommon observations: platform iskey, distribution will be a challenge,but the digital numbers are fi nally beginning to live up to the hype.“2011 will be a tipping point,said the morning’s fi rst speaker,Michael Comish, from UK video provider, Blinkbox. Citingsmartphones and tablets, Comishsaid consumers were shifting froma culture of “ownership” to one of “access”, and they are now likely topay for content on their devices.He stressed the benefi ts of off eringa mix of free and paid content.Most digital businesses cannotsurvive on ads alone, he noted.But ad-supported free content is agreat way to underwrite “customeracquisition”, and is also how consumers come to know, like andtrust new products.Paul Brindley, CEO of digitalmusic provider MusicAlly.com,characterized the history of themusic business in one word:resistance. But Brindley cited awave of innovative new digitalbusinesses and deals refocusedon providing music as a service.Unlike the music business, whichwas at the tip of the digital spear,he suggested book publishers werein an excellent position. T e timingis great, he noted: the devices arehere, books are not easily “ripped,”and the “unbundling” of booksis an opportunity for publishers.In addition, digital adds new value, such as the ability to takea library on vacation, search, andnetworking capabilities.Bloomsbury’s Evan Schnittmanclosed the morning keynoteswith a look at the surging USebook market, echoing some of the opportunities and challengesraised by Comish and Brindley.A device may have jump-startedthe market – the Kindle – butthe market is not device driven,he stressed. Rather, platformis the key. On that front, eachspeaker alluded to the challenges
LBF Digital – the future is now 
of distribution. Schnittmansuggested there loomed “atremendous channel problem,for publishers as the dominanceof the closed platforms fromApple, and Amazon, is essentially a tax on reaching your customers.Apple is not your friend,”Comish earlier warned.“Content is king, but notforever, as distribution powerconcentrates.”
