ABC News discusses the withdrawal of six artists from the Telstra Awards.

John Oster, Executive Officer at Desart is quoted in the report:

"The majority of people in this industry are fair, reputable and legitimate dealers."

"However, there are perennial stories that keep surfacing, they almost surface by the month about unethical and nefarious goings on, and that doesnt do the industry any good."
