Marginal Distribution received a Notice of Detention from Canada Customs indicating that the book Fetish Photo Anthology Volume 2 was seized on June 15. The notice, a K27 form, classifies the book as "other" under the Canada Customs guidelines for prohibited importations Memorandum D9-1-1, for imports covered by Tariff Code 9956 of the Customs Tariff.
Earlier this year, Canada Customs had also detained, then released, a shipment of books from Greenery Press in San Francisco, California. The books, all written by women, are The Topping Book and The Bottoming Book by Dossie Easton and Catherine A. Liszt, The Sexually Dominant Woman and The Complete Spanker by Lady Green. All four books have been available in Canada prior to the Customs detention.
