On parallel import restrictions

"It's time to kill parallel import restrictions" (yesterday). Evan Mulholland needs to stop whining about the parallel importation of books and start worrying about the death of our culture should PIRs be abolished. Like him, I’m an Australian book-lover, but I know damn well that cheaper books have long been available to me and to any Australian buyer through the internet. If he doesn’t know that, he’s not a book-lover.
