India has extraordinary human capital with regard to IT development. This has enabled it to build up a thriving industry of publishing services and online platforms that can compete against the US giants themselves for variety and dynamism. Among traditional publishers, digital is often seen as an interesting opportunity, although it is not without its challenges: piracy, the lack of defined business models and limitations when it comes to building a brand are some of the problems that still need to be tackled. If the country’s entrepreneurs could manage to find the right tools and the right market, India could become a global leader in electronic publishing.
