@ single publication rule
Under the "single publication rule," where an issue of a newspaper or magazine, or an edition of a book, contains a libelous statement, plaintiff has a single cause of action and the number of copies distributed is considered as relevant for damages but not as a basis for a new cause of action. Barres v. Holt, Rinehart and Winston, Inc., 131 N.J.Super. 371, 330 A.2d 38.
General theory of this rule is that a defendant should be subject to suit only once for each mass publication of libel, but that in that one action plaintiff may introduce evidence of all sales in all jurisdictions to show extent of his injury. Novel v. Garrison, D.C.I1L, 294 F.Supp. 825, 830
