The OFT has "provisionally concluded that current distribution agreements for newspapers are likely to be compatible with the Competition Act", and that distribution agreements for magazines would be if they do not have "absolute territorial protection" restrictions. It will shortly issue a draft advisory opinion for consultation, and intends to issue a final opinion in May 2005.
