    Ok I am looking to get a few more signatures over the weekend, and send out the letter on Monday

    Do forward this around to anyone who may be interested, and add your comments.
    Post this anywhere else that may be relevant too
    Thanks!

    posted on Cowboy Bar. I'm not really in contact with many bloggers so I'm not sure who to get in touch with.
    any suggestions? perhaps you could forward this.

    er i dont mean to be picky... but if the writers of the letter take the view that they have been defamed...

    then i would suggest that no one reproduce the newspaper here or link to it, as someone did earlier in this thread, because that would also constitute a continuing defamation..

    its rather amazing how a top leading print media lacks integrity.

    the dtp artist must be damn busy now.

    i dun think it is a lack of integrity, despite of signing for it. i think it is merely an unawareness of how ppl take it.

    I have to agree with jdredd though, posting the image (rather then just a link) here on CS is also breach of copyright - just because it is a reproduction I don't think mitigates it.

    Although I also agree, I just find it ironic that you are infinging copyright by taking a photo of a copy of a photo of yourself.

    i think by common sense let's just put aside a minor issue.

    hmm..by "top leading", i assume you mean in terms of readership and not quality?

    Cause I wouldn't really associate the paper with quality reports.

    Well done mattlock

    I suggest getting mr brown (mrbrown.com) or mr wang to cover this. Xia xue might not be appropriate due to conflict of interest (she writes for STOMP). By the way, I've seen on the STOMP website terms and conditions that anything you contribute to them belongs to them belongs to SPH, as in you transfer all rights to them. I've sent them an email questioning the authenticity of their terms and conditions but there were no replies. Hence, if you want to upload any pictures, please do read through the T&C carefully. When in doubt, don't upload. Retain the copyrights of your pictures.

    Support people, not corporations.
