Long DescriptionIn this interdisciplinary study of the laws and policies associated with commercial radio and television, Thomas Streeter reverses the usual take on broadcasting and markets by showing that government regulation creates rather than intervenes in the market. Analyzing the processes by which commercial media are organized, Streeter asks how it is possible to take the practice of broadcasting—the reproduction of disembodied sounds and pictures for dissemination to vast unseen audiences—and constitute it as something that can be bought, owned, and sold. With an impressive command of broadcast history, as well as critical and cultural studies of the media, Streeter shows that liberal marketplace principles—ideas of individuality, property, public interest, and markets—have come into contradiction with themselves. Commercial broadcasting is dependent on government privileges, and Streeter provides a searching critique of the political choices of corporate liberalism that shape our landscape of cultural property and electronic intangibles.

Do you have a large number of products that you would like added to the web site but you don't want to enter them one at a time? We would be happy to take a data file from you and import it directly into our collection.

It is best if you have a user account on the web site. This will let us attach your products to your account so you can make changes easily in the future. If you don't have an account, it is likely that we would make one for you when we go to import your data.

We can take your data in a few basic formats:

  1. A text file of comma seperated VALUES (CSV)
  2. A spread sheet file such as Excel or Open Office
  3. MySQL insert script

We can probably work with other formats too, but these formats are the easiest for us to work with so we prefer that you use them to make things easier for us during the import process.

The data file you send us should contain one product per line with no extra comments. You may want to add column headers to the top of your data file to make it easier for us to ideantify the information you are sending.

There are only a couple fields that we require but the more information you provide the better it is for the users that visit this site searching for information. Here is what we need from you:

EAN Code (required) This can be either the 13 digit EAN code or the 12 digit UPC code. Without this we can't store your information.
Amazon ASIN (optional) If your product is listed on Amazon, we can use this number to gather the remaining information and even grab a picture of your product.
Title (required) The name of your product. If you provided the Amazon ASIN, then we don't really need this. We will pull it from Amazon instead.
Description (optional) This is usually the size, color, weight or product type. Some examples include "32 oz", "6 pounds", "blue", "D-Size 4 Pack", "DVD", "Cassette"
Category (optional) You can use text here or our category numbers. We can massage your text to fit into our categories as needed.
URL (optional) This is a direct link to the product detail information on your web site or the site where you want people to buy your product from.
Long Description (optional) You can list up to 2,000 characters in your description.
SKU (optional) Up to 100 characters

In addition to your product data, when you send us your information you can send us your company contact information. If your profile doesn't already have this information, it is very helpful to the users that visit our site. This information would simply be included in the email you send us with your data file. What we would like in your company information block includes:

To submit your data to us, simple prepare your data file and email it to us by using the contact link at the bottom of any of our pages. Large data files can be compressed into a ZIP file if you like.

It is always a good idea to claim your products on our site if you are not going to send us a data file. This lets you take charge of the information we already have and information that we may collect later.
