Two and a half years ago (October 2005) LAMP allowed website readers to download a small screen shot, PDF (where only the text was visible) of a 880 word article in Australian Financial Review published 6 Oct 2005.
The article was entirely about the newly formed LAMP – the BBC background of Gary Hayes (brought in to run it), interviews with Peter Giles (Head of Digital Media), Gary Hayes and LAMP mentors.
Two days ago we were sent a legal notice from Fairfax media saying we had breached copyright. So on request we have removed the screen shot and also have to publish these statements. Enjoy.
