Pirated Signals
for sale in Pakistan !

Computer software is not the only thing pirated in the world today. Signal fans and readers in the Third World have found out a way to earn more money by printing Signal magazines without my permission and selling it in the bookshops, newsstands, kiosks of Karachi and Lahore in Pakistan. The retail price seems to be 120 Pakistani Rupees there and the pirated Signal propably is sold also in the United Arab Emirates as the price is marked on the cover also in Dirhams.

This pirated 84-page Signal magazine, issue 90 of 1997, contains in fact ads taken from a few different Signals. They have been combined into one magazine, inner 80 pages have been printed on web offset on light yellow paper, the multicolor glossy cover pages are fine four color offset work on better paper stock, even the new layout is good but the front page photos are not from the original Signal magazines !
I would like to have a few hundred copies myself, for resale purposes...

Should I be angry or proud about this pirated Signal magazine ? I do not get any money from sale of the single copies, the money is "stolen" from me... But could I have arranged sale of thousands of Signal magazines in the Pakistani bookshops ? What about the printing expenses ? Color separations, distributing costs ??? Zero for me...

Who benefits from the pirated Signals? The economical profits go the printers and marketers in Karachi and Lahore, some bookshop owners and magazine retailers earn their commissions, too. Even some printers, paper dealers, lorry drivers may get bread thanks to the Signal ? Most Signal advertisers propably benefit from these pirated magazines, they may receive more replies to their ads from Asian countries...
This kind of "publishing business" has been going on for several years in Pakistan !

What to do about the pirated Signal magazines ? As I simply am NOT able to hinder their printing on the other side of the world I've done just the opposite. I try to increase Signal's readership by letting foreign penpal publishers reproduce my magazine legally for local resale anywhere in the world. I've sent co-operation (franchising, splitting of profits) offers to hundreds of publishers and printers. We should see the first "official" foreign Signal edition now in November 1998. Printing and distribution mainly in India...
If you are interested in publishing the local Signal-edition send just return postage US$ 1 or 2 International Reply Coupons for more details to
