Temporary restraining order prevents publishers bailing from Source

A judge in New York has issued a temporary restraining order, forbidding magazine publishers from diverting their titles from Source Interlink's distribution stream. The order, as reported in Folio:, is related to Source's dubious contention that big publishers are colluding to put it out of the single copy distribution business. When, in fact, what may put it out of the distribution business is a) the badly broken single copy business model and b) Source's own decision to high-handedly try to impose a surcharge on publishers without discussion.

Named in the suit are Time Inc. and Hachette, American Media Inc., Bauer Publishing, Curtis Circulation, Distribution Services Inc., Kable Distribution Services, and Time Warner Retail.
