A lot of interest has been generated across the industry by the US International Trade Commission's report that was released into the public domain earlier this week. Assessing the competitiveness of certain foreign suppliers to the US market, I'm pleased to see it quotes extensively from many of the features and management briefings published on just-style.com over the past couple of years. It's somewhat ironic then, that the USITC study was 'Classified' for the first nine months after its publication - with the words "Confidential. National Security
Information" imprinted on the cover. It seems the US government relies on just-style.com for its information - and then sends people to jail if they reveal it! How important does that make us feel?
