Federal Budget Dismantles Exclusive Distribution?

I didn’t get to hear the budget live, but if I understand correctly everything that was being said on the drive home today, the Finance Minister is freeing up retailers to buy product from any vendor or distributor if they feel the distributor of record (or exclusive distributor) isn’t being fair in terms of conversion of U.S. pricing. So technically if Distributor “B” can prove to the U.S. publisher that they can offer better pricing than Distributor “A” they should be able to sell the product as well.

Is that what you heard?  Feel free to comment, and I’ll update this as well. (Ethically, the distributor who marketed the product to you should get first pass on the order, and in a smaller country, double distribution isn’t efficient, though there are some regional variances where this could make sense…)
