In brief the new law focuses on three things:
1. Price disclosure. Publishers when marketing textbooks to professors must disclose prices and revision informatin.
2. Items are "unbundled" - CD's and other items once bundled together must now be offered by the publisher as separate purchases.
3. Textbook lists are made available a time of registration so students (and parents) can find the best price for their pocketbook.
