Re: Out of print (wag the long tail?)
I wonder if there's a parallel with those portfolios of patents, where there are bunches of patents that have no known (current) usage. But if your portfolio has 1000s and 1000s of patents, altogether they might make a marketable aggregation?
Hey, yeah, we have a zillion books that haven't seen ink in ages, but an investor could maybe want to publish some after buying the group, right? Or maybe reissued on the 50th anniversary of the author's death, or the 100th anniversary, or the 150th... (It'll still be copyrighted 'cuz Congress.)
