EBookNewser reports that social e-reading platform Copia is about to expand into Australia, in partnership with the Australian Publishers Association. The platform is going to allow booksellers to offer customized e-book and e-reader services to their customers under the APA’s “TitlePage” brand, based on localized content.

It’s interesting to see these smaller brands expand internationally when larger ones like Barnes & Noble seem firmly stuck on American soil. I wonder if our next serious competitor to Amazon will emerge from a seed planted in foreign ground?
