R2013-10 Order No. 1894 – Notice and Order on Amended Market Dominant Price Adjustment

On November 29, 2013, the Postal Service filed a notice of an amendment to certain market dominant rates.  The revisions to the market dominant price adjustment were made in response to Commission Order No. 1890.
The Postal Service states that it has elected to defer implementation of the Full Service Intelligent Mail barcode (IMb) requirement until after 2014. It has attached a draft Federal Register notice announcing the deferral of the Full Service IMb requirement. Response at 3, Attachment C. It has also equalized the commercial and nonprofit discounts for Standard Mail 5-digit automation flats by decreasing the commercial discount to 9.0 cents. This modified discount raises the average price increase of the Standard Mail Flats product to 2.078 percent.

The Postal Service confirms that other than the revisions stated above, all other prices proposed in this docket will go into effect on January 26, 2014 without further modifications. Id

Sculptor of Las Vegas Statue of Liberty sues USPS for copyright infringement

You may remember that in 2011 the US Postal Service issued a Statue of Liberty “forever” stamp. You may also recall that shortly thereafter, it was revealed by Linn’s Stamp News that the statue pictured on the stamp wasn’t the famous one in New York Harbor, but rather, a replica that stands outside a casino in Las Vegas.
