    News Corp may have slipped it’s soap back on the rope but “What’s done, cannot be undone. To bed, to bed…”.

    They’re idiots! It’s the 21st century, everyone who wants a copy can get one, house had bolted well and truly.

    From the ABC –

    “News Corp’s chief executive Julian Clarke has dismissed the revelations as ‘yesterday’s news … quite frankly, what [has been] published is 14 months old, ask me about what’s happened in the last 12 months.’ ”

    But they send in the lawyers anyway.

    Good coup Crikey and keep up the good work. I love it when you stick it up Uncle Murdoch!

    On what grounds did News Corp argue that Crikey shouldn’t use its operating statement – copyright?
