Stands 'Looted' At Bolgona

from The Independent:

British publishers have expressed outrage at what they describe as the widespread "looting" from their stands by people attending the world's leading children's book exhibition.

Michael O'Mara Books, an independent publisher, found nearly three-quarters of its titles had vanished.

Its staff took the titles to Italy for the Bologna Children's Book Fair to sell the rights to publishers worldwide - only to find themselves left without the tools of their trade.

Mauro Spagnol, senior foreign rights manager for the publisher, told The Independent that up to 70 of 100 titles were stolen from his stand, with neighbouring stands suffering similar thefts.
