A ‘digitised’ publication is text and images that are produced electronically and can be transmitted electronically or downloaded. Typically, this is over the internet or a mobile telecommunications network, and read either on a PC or a hand-held device, such as a mobile phone. Digitised publications may be known as e-books, e-journals and e-newspapers.
Services, not goods
In line with international agreements, digitised publications are a supply of services, not goods.
