Corporate Crime

Music Firm Spared Asbo after Fly-Posting Pledge

Executives at music giant Sony escaped an anti-social behaviour order and a possible five years in jail today by promising not to order illegal fly-posting.

In the first case of its kind, Camden Council in north London went to court to try to issue anti-social behaviour orders, normally reserved for unruly teenagers, against Sony and BMG.

But summonses against Catherine Davies and Jo Headland of Sony were withdrawn at Highbury Magistrates’ Court after they pledged they would not order any illegal fly-posting [Fly posting is the display of information in unauthorised places.] in England and Wales.

No word yet on whether Sony will be facing similar charges for its role as Avril Lavigne record label. Heh, heh. I kill me.
