Daily Mail Australia is "seeking urgent assurances" that News Corp's tabloids will stop lifting its exclusives without attributing or linking back to the source, the publisher said today. The lengthy statement sent to journalists comes after News Corp served the Daily Mail with a cease-and-desist letter telling it to stop rewriting its stories. Several examples were offered, including a Mail exclusive interview with the kidnapping victim of murdered teenager Jamie Gao, where, when rehashed in the Daily Telegraph, the exclusive interview is credited only to a "British newspaper".
