Aunty Beeb sez ‘Ood: no data’
Thursday May 22nd 2008, 11:19 am

The BBC seem to have taken a page out of the Metallica Guide To Winning Dedicated Fans.

Aunty says 'No.'

Aunty’s upset about a crochet pattern made by a fan and offered for free on her website; BBC Worldwide threatened a copyright lawsuit if the pattern were not removed. Regrettably, the knitter complied. She should have told them to EFF off.

Outraged residents of Oodnadatta, South Australia are rumoured to be taking advice on the BBC’s blatant exploitation of their historic town name via this silly Dr Who character.

Amazing that a huge corporation can feel their income threatened by a pissy little blog with 60 technorati results.

of course we’ve loathed the BEEB ever since they destroyed all the tapes of Peter Cook and Dudley Moores TV show.
a pox on ’em.
