‘It’s one thing for a producer or manufacturer to compete with a cheaper competitor. It’s another to compete with your own work being sold back cheaply in to your own market’—Working Title Press director Jane Covernton warns against the proposed repeal of PIRs in her submission to the Productivity Commission’s inquiry into Australia’s intellectual property arrangements
US Book and Calendar Publisher, Andrews McMeel Publishing, is closing their Australian office.
Local Managing Director, Deborah McQuoid, will manage the transition of the business until the end of March, 2016. All AMP staff positions have been made redundant.
‘Andrews McMeel Publishing will maintain an ongoing direct book distribution arrangement with Hardie Grant Books and they are currently looking at potential ways to support AMP calendar customers in Australia and New Zealand,’ stated Deborah McQuoid. ‘The business however will no longer be served by a local office’.
Paperblanks, which has been managed through the AMP office, will continue independently with no changes to sales or distribution. All contact details remain the same. Tel 02 9904 5200.
