The commonest fonn in which a publisher pays an author for permission to print and sell his work is royalties. A royalty is a payment made for the use of someone else's idea or creation or invention. In the case of books it is usually calculated as a percentage of the total price of all copies sold. Thus the more copies of an author's book that are sold, the more he gets paid as royalties. For example, a 10 per cent royalty on a book priced Rs 40 would be Rs 4, that is the publisher would have to pay the author four rupees for each copy of the book sold.
