Do I own the ISBN?

When you purchase an ISBN through ISBNdirect, you're acquiring the right to use that ISBN for your specific book. This isn't traditional ownership of a physical object but rather the right to use a unique identifier for your publication globally.

Our platform facilitates this by enabling registration of your book with Bowker, permanently linking your publication to the ISBN. This step solidifies your book's identity within the global publishing landscape.

The rights you receive with us are comparable to those obtained directly from national agencies like Bowker or Nielsen. The legal standing and benefits are consistent, ensuring universal identification and accessibility for your book.

Opting for ISBNdirect combines convenience, global recognition, and legal assurance, providing a smart solution for authors aiming to establish their book in the global market.
