Australian Publishing Is Losing the Copyright Fight - PW (Publishers' Weekly)

Today's trip into the Catosphere took Panzer to the Publishers' Weekly site. There he found a post about changes to Australia's copyright law.

According to the post by Ed Nawotka, the Australian Productivity Commission is set to change Australian copyright law. Under the new proposal parallel imports would be allowed. This means the U.S. and U.K. publishers would be able to enter the Australian book market. The proposal also includes a change to the length of a copyright.

Panzer says, "I didn't know the Australian book market worked like this."

Note: This is a shortish-medium post. Bring a cup of tea and half a muffin for today's reading selection.
