Remeber the "Mike Batt Plagiarises Silence" news story a while ago? Well, it has been settled. And yes, he's gonna have to pay a six-figure sum. Don't you just love the British legal system? Some classic quotes in this one.

Damn, I thought we were getting our Nirvana boxed set from the title. :(

What was the settlement? I haven't seen anything about it but maybe it happened when I was in NZ.

Oooooh... why no news item about that then huh?

Which paper, and what was the result? I can't see it anywhere.

That's cause *$%#!& vBulletin introduced page breaks into it. Oh well, I'll just link to individual news stories and skip the proposed "Oooh, look at the new Google News Page, Cool" threadjack.

And there won't be a box set. Courtney won.
