PUBLISHERS ASSOCIATION OF THE WEST (PUBWEST) - ANTITRUST POLICY
Publishers Association of the West, Inc., d/b/a PubWest® (“PubWest”) supports full and open competition among its members, and respects and embraces antitrust laws. Antitrust laws prohibit coordinated conduct among competitors as to, by example, price fixing, terms of trade, allocation of customers, markets or territories, and boycotts. Violating antitrust laws could subject PubWest, its members, and staff to criminal or civil enforcement actions by governmental authorities or private litigants. Because an unlawful agreement can be inferred from communications among competitors, PubWest’s members must not engage in discussions (formal or casual) about these topics.
PubWest has adopted the following guidelines (“DO NOT’S” AND “DO’S”) for all PubWest-sponsored activities:
