relating to Europe

COMMENT: The term ‘Europe’ has several meanings; geographically it refers to countries from Russia to the Atlantic. In publishing terms, it is often used to refer to countries from Germany and Austria to the Atlantic, and may not include the countries of Eastern Europe which have separate rights and copyright laws. Finally, in discussions between British and American publishers, the term ‘Europe’ is used to mean countries in Western Europe, but excluding the United Kingdom (and sometimes Ireland). This is particularly relevant where an American publisher licenses a British publisher to publish a book in British English, but retains the right to sell the original American version in Europe outside the UK: in this case, such a book may well legally be sold in the UK, in spite of the British publisher\'s exclusivity, because EU regulations encourage the free trade in goods within the Community.
