Ban Is Eased on Editing Foreign Work

From commons-blog: "According to The New York Times, the U.S. government has backed off from its prohibition on publishers editing manuscripts written by people living in countries under trade embargoes. The news comes from a letter sent by the Treasury Department to a lawyer for the Institute for Electronic and Electrical Engineers (IEEE) saying embargoes on trade with countries such as Iran, Cuba, Libya, and North Korea do not extend to editorial services."
