Sony Music Entertainment (UK) Limited gave an undertaking - which was read out in court today (June 14 2004) - in the case of Jo Headland and Catherine Davies, and on behalf of the company, that Camden LBC's approach had had the desired effect and that they had agreed to cease flyposting in England and Wales and to pay costs.
John Thane, executive member for the environment, Camden LBC, said: 'Camden Council is pleased that Sony Music Entertainment (UK) Limited has recognised that flyposting is antisocial behaviour and cannot continue. We will be encouraging other companies engaging in flyposting in Camden and around England and Wales to recognise this as well and we will be using this legislation against those that don't do so.
'In the case of BMG UK and Ireland Ltd, we are disappointed that they declined our offer to make the same undertaking as Sony Music Entertainment (UK) Limited. We did not proceed against Lucy Hansford because she is leaving the company next week, but we will be targeting other people who are responsible for flyposting forthwith.'
