Fels and Brenchley on Australian Copyright Subsidy

Fels and Brenchley on Australian Copyright Subsidy [<- for the benefit of PlanetLA which still hasn’t got my feed right]

Alans Fels and Fred Brenchley have a piece  in the SMH on an ongoing battle by some sections of the Australian industry to prevent consumers from importing books which have been legally printed overseas – Ie: protect them from competition – subsidise them: “The scare campaign against an open market from publishers and authors is well rehearsed. The same campaign was launched by the music industry against CD imports. It was shown to be false. Ditto for books in New Zealand.”
