National Poster Ass'n Drops Manufacturing Plan
National Poster Service Ass'n formed by independent poster exchanges last July, has discarded its announced plans of making its own posters. Change is due to fact that several major distributors are not prosecuting independent exchanges for use of their paper on the grounds of copyright violation, as threatened early in the summer. A check-up made yesterday shows that independent poster exchanges are now operating without being hampered in this respect.
Abandoning of this project is not expected to interfere with the association's plans for increasing its membership. Meetings are being held weekly in New York.
