I was wondering if there is a trade group that represents the interest of publishers.
My company had an exclusive contract with an advertising network that guaranteed us monthly revenue for years as long as we hit traffic minimums.
Long story short, the economy went south, the network tried tried to get out of the contract, and claimed we breached it. Thus, we're in court. Without getting into the technical details I believe the merits of the case are of interest to other publishers and the courts don't seem to have a lot of experience in these matters.
Is there an internet trade group that represents publishers? Getting them on my side might not only help me but help other publishers down the road.
