At the ESPANA 2006 in Malaga websites are still going to be a component of the literature-exhibition class. The LIPSIA 2007, national literature-exhibition in Leipzig/Germany in 2007 is likely to exclude them. So it follows Mr. Francis Kiddles’ advice that the president of the literature commission just announced. These medial appearances, so Mr. Kiddle, reputedly are too wide, cannot be overseen and are not as static as the printed literature but changeable and variable at all times so that an evaluation is hardly possible.

To prevent the exclusion of modern media from the literature exhibition class the AIJP could not accept this statement without reserve. “The trend to literature on the Internet is obvious”, says the president of the AIJP, Wolfgang Maassen in his statement, “in nowadays even the philatelic federations more and more publish literature on the Internet. This would mean excluding whole generations of authors and journalist in future, which is unacceptable.” Maassen also underlines the willing of the AIJP to help forming the new regulation and include the federation’s competence targeted.
