AFR no longer available from NewsBank

From 15 June, 2007, the Australian Financial Review will no longer be available from NewsBank. (from Fairfax, 4/4/07): Fairfax has not provided any permission that would enable NewsBank to distribute our content in any form. We have raised the issue with NewsBank and will be following up the issue with NewsStand.

(from NewsBank, 17/11/06): "Under a joint distribution program, NewsBank partners with NewsStand to deliver AFR image eEdition. NewsBank has rights to sell AFR in the ANZ region under this partnership. The current AFR contract is with NewsStand. There has been no advice that the rights will end. NewsBank is aware of the recent changes with some AFR business content providers, and in the event of a change during 2007 subscription, NewsBank would be prepared to compensate customers."
