It is shown that, for p \leq p, K_{p,q} has a representation with no rectangles having collinear sides if and only if p < 3 or p = 3 and q \leq 4. More generally, it is shown that K_{p,q} is a rectangle-visibility graph if and only if p \leq 4. Finally, it is shown that every bipartite rectangle-visibility graph on n \geq 4 vertices has at most 4n - 12 edges.
