Yesterday the Sunday Herald, which is not bound by the terms of the injunction because it is published north of the border, intensified the row by publishing the footballer’s picture on its front page and naming him inside.
The injunction only covers media based in England and Wales.
This blog may or may not come under that definition and that\’s something I\’m not about to test.
You would think that someone who had access to US based media, say, one of those would be volunteer generated newspaper sites, could therefore make a bundle by announcing the news there and cleaning up on internet traffic and advertising.
Strangely, I know someone who has done that and have seen their traffic. So many people actually know the result that it\’s not worth it. Weirdly.
And as to the success of Mssrs. 5 p, as one wag over at The Register pointed out, more people now know who he is than know what a footballer is.
