to change the spelling and style of a book written in English from British to American. ➮ British traditional market

COMMENT: American rights are the permission given by a publisher from outside the USA to an American publisher to publish an American edition of a work; this usually includes the right to publish the book in Canada. In the case of works first published in Great Britain, the rights will cover the Americanisation of the spelling and syntax. It is sometimes not easy for a British publisher to limit the market for an American edition to the USA alone, or to prevent the edition from being sold in markets outside the UK where American publishing companies have a strong marketing presence, such as Australia.
