an anti-social behaviour order by Camden LBC.
The council took the step after repeated warnings failed to prevent the company flyposting in the borough, and attempts to prosecute ended in derisory fines (LGC, 4 June).
A Camden spokesman hailed the result as a success for the council's unconventional interpretation of anti-social behaviour legislation.
Camden now plans to pursue around 25 other companies it believes are commissioning illegal posters in the borough. Future targets will include individuals at music publisher BMG, after it emerged the executive against whom the order was originally sought is leaving the company this month.
Other councils, including Manchester City Council, are understood to be considering ASBOs as a means of tackling illegal flyposting.
Both Sony and BMG declined to comment.
