Description

In 1985 Felix Dennis’ Dennis Publishing, the creators of MacUser in the UK, licensed the name and “mouse-rating” symbol for MacUser to Ziff-Davis Publishing for use in the rest of the world. MacUser was published in the United States by Ziff-Davis Publishing Co. until October 1997. In the United Kingdom MacUser continued as a biweekly, then monthly computer magazine published by Dennis Publishing Ltd. and licensed by Felden in the UK until it ceased publication in 2015. MacUser UK was never linked to the MacUser US. The incomplete inventory includes both US and UK publications.
