Adding up

Adding up: Reuters is reporting Gruner + Jahr USA is suing an independent circulation agent for providing faulty subscription data that could cause several of its titles to fall short of their guarantees to advertisers.


G+J said it found that the subscription agent, Publishers Communication Systems Inc., did not provide sufficient documentation for subscription orders it submitted for a number of G+J titles in second-half 2003 and early 2004, causing 165,000 subscriptions to be classified as unpaid for 2003 by industry auditors.
