Apply the rule when there are two entities named, one for publishing and the other for distributing, and the distributing entity's name does not convey an indication of this function.  Apply it also when a single entity is named, it is known that this entity performed only a distributing function, and its name does not indicate this function.  Do not apply it in other cases.


If the phrase indicating the function of distribution is simple, e.g., "for sale by," record it as it appears.  For complex statements from which a succinct phrase cannot conveniently be excised, substitute the word "distributor" as a qualification to the body's name.
