The IPA was dismayed this month when the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) declined to consider the appeal in Authors Guild v. Google (the Google Books case), bringing to an end more than a decade of litigation.
The IPA has been building on the solid foundations recently laid in the Association's relationship with Latin American publishing, with prominent speaking appearances at two of South America's biggest book fairs, in Buenos Aires, Argentina, and Bogotá, Colombia.
The International Publishers Association (IPA) and seven other world free expression and publishing organizations have co-signed a letter to the Hong Kong Government to urge China to release the five booksellers that were forcibly disappeared and detained late last year.
International Publishers Association president Richard Charkin opened the annual, month-long Bangladesh International Book Fair, in Dhaka, this week, stressing that publishing makes its most valuable contribution to society when governments allow the industry to operate freely.
