While researching down at the Vancouver Public Library, and reading specifically the BC Report magazine (covered earlier in the BBC) we came across something that made us all go Hmmmmmmmm!!!
postage stamps can be so rare, because of an error in their printing that they are now worth millions, if not Billions of dollars, why not a magazine? One Postage stamp is printed in a far greater number for the use of a Country's citizens than one magazine publishing for it's readership in one Province, therefore the value of a printing error in a magazine could be more valuable, depending largely on the topic, of course.
A postage stamp that has an image upside down and the printing right side up, is rare!
Once a magazine or book is published, in hard copy, how can they possibly be clawed back from the public domain? The online version can be removed or "modified" except for the cache version.
In the case of the BC Report magazine, what would be the value of their limited copies, from a once upon a time, robust, four issues per month publication, now reduced to a state of non-existence?
To the best of our knowledge there are only TWO known copies in existence of this typo:
SNIP Steve MacNaull
Who knows, maybe the typo was what brought about the sudden end to the BC Report magazine.
